Barlaston railway station serves the village of Barlaston in Staffordshire, England. This station was opened on 17 April 1848 and is on the first line opened by the North Staffordshire Railway on that date.
Trains no longer stop at Barlaston. The Stafford to Stoke-on-Trent local service was withdrawn when the route was temporarily closed for major refurbishment on 23 May 2004 as part of the WCML Modernisation scheme and never reinstated. Passengers are now served by bus service No 14 and 14X operated by D&G Bus, which acts as the station's official Rail Replacement Bus, on which valid rail tickets (including Advance Purchase tickets) to/from Wedgwood and Barlaston are officially accepted. Access to the platforms is no longer possible as the station has been fenced off.
Barlaston is mentioned in the ghost or parliamentary train list maintained by Ghost Train Hunters enthusiasts group. The North Staffs Rail Promotion Group campaign for the restoration of the train service continues.
