Butlers Lane railway station serves the northern part of the Four Oaks district of Sutton Coldfield, England. It is situated on the Cross-City Line. The station, and all trains calling there are operated by West Midlands Trains.
The station was opened as a temporary wooden station in 1957 under British Railways, to coincide with the introduction of new diesel multiple units on the line from Birmingham to Lichfield, it was originally known as Butlers Lane Halt despite being staffed from the beginning. It became one of the stations served by the new Cross-City Line from 1978. The original wooden station was rebuilt as a permanent structure during 1991/92, to coincide with the electrification of the line by British Rail.
The station has a staffed ticket office on the southbound platform, open on a part-time basis throughout the week. A self-service ticket machine is also available for use when the office is closed and for collecting pre-paid tickets. Waiting shelters are located on both platforms and train running information is given via CIS displays, timetable posters, automated announcements and two customer help points. No step-free access is possible to either platform, as both entrances from the road above require the use of steps.
On Mondays to Saturdays, four trains per hour operate southbound; with two to Longbridge and two to Redditch via Longbridge. Northbound there are four trains per hour as well; two to Lichfield Trent Valley and two to Lichfield City. On Sundays, trains run every 30 minutes between Lichfield Trent Valley and Redditch.
