Albion railway station was a railway station in England, built by the London and North Western Railway on their Stour Valley Line in 1853. It served the town of Oldbury, and was located near to Union Road.
Opened by the Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Stour Valley Railway, then absorbed into 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. The station was then closed by the British Transport Commission.
The site today
There is little evidence of the location of the station on the ground today; Oldbury is now served by Sandwell and Dudley railway station.
