Tyseley railway station serves the district of Tyseley in Birmingham, West Midlands, England. It is situated at the junction of the lines from Birmingham towards Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon, and is adjacent to a large railway depot and Tyseley Locomotive Works.
Pre-nationalisation a GWR station on their main line from London (Paddington) to Birkenhead (Woodside) the station is now served by London Midland (who manage the station) and also by Chiltern Railways (in the late evening only). The main station building sits on a bridge over the tracks. It shares the bridge with Wharfedale Road (the B4146).
Due to increased demand, Tyseley has had extensive track layout modification, to allow all four platforms to be used (previously, only 3 and 4 were used). Work has also commenced on upgrading the Solihull line by adding a third track.
Following the Birmingham to Warwick resignalling of 2007-08, two disused platforms were brought into use, with services to and from Solihull now able to use the new 60 mph Tyseley North Junction. Two new junctions have been built at each end of the station, which allows non-stopping services for Snow Hill to cross from Solihull at 60 mph.
Mondays to Saturdays, daytime service is generally two trains per hour outside of peak times.
