Glasgow Central - Motherwell

ScotRail (Glasgow Central to Lanark, Edinburgh via Carstairs)
Cross Country (Glasgow Central to English destinations via Edinburgh)
Transpennine (Glasgow Central to Manchester Airport)
Virgin (Glasgow Central to London Euston)
Caledonian Sleeper (Glasgow Central to London Euston)
LNER (Glasgow Central to London Kings Cross)

Probably not quite the same as neither LNER nor CS are regular services, and on CS you couldn't alight at Motherwell from Glasgow Central unless you never had a ticket and were being removed.

6 also operate between Motherwell and Glasgow Central, and between Edinburgh and Haymarket. Scotrail, Virgin, TPE, Caledonian Sleeper, XC and LNER.

5 operators run between Birmingham International and New Street/Wolverhampton (Virgin, XC, West Midlands, London Northwestern, TfW).

But no, nowhere has more than 6 I believe.

The sleeper doesn't call at Haymarket and TPE are set down only heading towards Edinburgh, pick up only towards Manchester.

Also West Midlands & London Northwestern are the same operator, just different brands
