Croxall railway station was a railway station serving the village of Croxall in Staffordshire between Tamworth and Burton upon Trent

It was opened in 1840 by the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway, one year after the line opened. [2]

It was called Oakley and Alrewas at first, changing to Oakley in 1849, then Croxall in 1856, closing in 1928.

Another station named Oakley was opened in 1857 by the Midland Railway on its extension from Leicester to Bedford and Hitchin. This closed in 1958.[1]
