Hagley railway station serves the English village of Hagley, Worcestershire. It was opened on 1 May 1852 as part of the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton railway.[1] The station retains its GWR-era station building and its cast and wrought iron monogrammed GWR canopied footbridge dating from 1884. The footbridge was listed grade 2 in 2000 and the station and its environs sits within the West Hagley Conservation Area. The footbridge was used by Hornby as the basis for its plastic model.

The footbridge was fully repainted in late 2011, changing the colours of the bridge from navy blue and white to cream and salmon. This is the latest in a series of recent renovations to the station in 2011, including the installation of SmartCard readers at the entrance to the station and also the installation of live departure boards on both platforms.

Services[edit]

In the past the service at this station was somewhat irregular, but since the Winter 2013 timetable commenced on 8 December the pattern has been simplified by operator London Midland. Off peak trains call every half hour in each direction, running to Kidderminster westbound and either Whitlocks End or Dorridge eastbound after Birmingham Snow Hill. Additional trains call during the morning & evening rush hours, when through trains to Droitwich Spa and both Worcester stations are available[2]

An hourly service runs in the late evenings and on Sundays, with trains running through to/from Worcester. Chiltern Railways used to operate a two there-one back service to London Marylebone on Monday to Fridays only, however only one service towards London calls here now. Its nearest railway stations are Stourbridge Junction (towards Birmingham) and Blakedown (towards Kidderminster and Worcester).

In July 2011, Customer Information Screens were installed at the station, one for each platform.
