Acocks Green railway station (previously known as Acocks Green & South Yardley) serves the Acocks Green area of Birmingham, in the West Midlands region of England. Pre-nationalisation a GWR station on their main line from London (Paddington) to Birkenhead (Woodside) the station is now served by West Midlands Railway, who manage the station.


Acocks Green was built to connect the local community to the industrialised areas of the city. Although the station never had a goods yard, Acocks Green boasted 4 platforms, and a loop line on the northbound slow line. British Rail rationalisation led to the removal of the slow lines (and loop) in both directions and the demolition of one island platform to allow for the construction of the current car park.


The remaining platforms in 2011

The station is served by West Midlands Railway on the Snow Hill Lines.[1][2] Services operate every 30 minutes in each direction.

Acocks Green is no longer served by Chiltern Railways services as of the May 2023 timetable change.[3][4] Services used to run southbound towards Banbury, High Wycombe and Marylebone.
