Broome railway station is a railway station (though in present times is more akin to a halt) serving the villages of Broome and Aston on Clun, in Shropshire, England. It is situated on the Heart of Wales Line, 22 3⁄4 miles (36.6 km) south west of Shrewsbury. All trains serving the station are operated by Arriva Trains Wales.
The station is, according to the most recent figures, the least used National Rail station in Shropshire.
Broome station was built by the Knighton Railway company on their branch line between Craven Arms and Knighton, opening with the line in 1861. In 1895 a wind engine was erected at the station for the London and North Western Railway by John Wallis Titt.
The line was double track and the station had two platforms, but the line has been singled and the station now has just one platform.
Originally the station was named "Broom and Aston".
There are four trains a day in each direction from Monday to Saturday, and two services on Sundays. This is a request stop, whereby passengers have to signal to the driver to board or alight from the train.
