Bilbrook railway station is a station on the Great Western Railway's London (Paddington) to Birkenhead via Birmingham (Snow Hill) line serving the village of Bilbrook and part of Codsall in Staffordshire, England. This unstaffed station is a little unusual in that the platforms are staggered either side of a road overbridge. Selective door opening must be used on trains of more than three coaches because of the short platform lengths.
It was known as Birches and Bilbrook Halt when opened, being renamed to Bilbrook on 6 May 1974.
Bilbrook is typically served Monday to Saturday by one train per hour in each direction between Birmingham New Street and Shrewsbury via Wolverhampton. These services are operated by London Midland with some extra trains at peak times on weekdays. Some late evening trains are operated by Arriva Trains Wales. There are fewer trains on Sundays (every two hours each way) and all Sunday services are operated by ATW. These mostly run between Wolverhampton & Shrewsbury only.
