Widney Manor railway station serves the Widney Manor area of Solihull in the West Midlands of England. The station is served by London Midland (who manage the station) and Chiltern Railways. A significant portion of the car park occupies what was the formation when the line was four tracks wide and the former GWR London Paddington - Birkenhead Woodside service passed through the station but did not stop. This service ceased with the electrification of the former LMS line from London Euston to Birmingham New Street.

Services[edit]

The station is served by three trains per hour in each direction between Birmingham Snow Hill and Dorridge. The Birmingham trains continue to either Stourbridge Junction or Kidderminster. One Dorridge service per hour continues to Stratford-upon-Avon, in peak hours some services extend to Leamington Spa.
