Wednesfield railway station was a station built by the Wolverhampton and Walsall Railway in 1872, and was operated by the Midland Railway from 1876 onwards. It served the Wednesfield area of Wolverhampton, and was located near to Neachells Lane.

The station closed in 1931. There is no evidence at the site of the existence of the station, as all buildings have been demolished and the trackbed has been used for the A4124 Wednesfield Way.
