Adderley Park railway station serves the Adderley Park area in the east of Birmingham, England. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by London Midland. It was threatened with closure in 2004, but has now been given a reprieve (although its train service was reduced from half-hourly to hourly each way). The station will become the main railway station for the proposed City of Birmingham Stadium, if that is constructed.

It lies on Bordesley Green Road, part of the B4145.

History[edit]

Opened by the London and North Western Railway it became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The line then passed on to the London Midland Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

When Sectorisation was introduced, the station was served by Regional Railways on behalf of the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive, for whom British Rail had been running the trains since the PTE's inception. Services on the Intercity Sector would frequently pass through on the West Coast Main Line as these services, run by the current operator, continue to do.

Service[edit]

Adderley Park is generally served by one train per hour in each direction between Birmingham New Street and Birmingham International with extra services at peak times on weekdays.[1] Additional peak services to/from Coventry, Rugby, Northampton, Milton Keynes and London call here, but most of these pass through without stopping.

London Midland proposed the closure of the ticket office.[2] The request has been denied.[3]
