Tipton Five Ways railway station
Tipton Five Ways railway station was a station built by the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway, serving the town of Tipton in the western section on the border with Coseley for 88 years from April 1854.
The 'Five Ways' tag was only added in 1950 - to avoid confusion with Tipton Owen Street. It was situated on the Oxford-Worcester-Wolverhampton Line. The station eventually closed in 1962, though the line remained open until 22 September 1968.
The site of the station was incorporated into the car park of Bean Industries in 1990 and remained part of the factory's land until they closed down in 2005. The station site is currently vacant and overlooks a small industrial estate on one side and a mid-2000s housing development on the other.
