Earlswood railway station serves the village of Earlswood on the West Midlands/Warwickshire border in England. The platforms straddle the county border, with the approach road on the West Midlands side. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by London Midland.

Originally opened as Earlswood Lakes in mid-1908, the station was renamed Earlswood on 6 May 1974.[1]

Services[edit]

The station is served by hourly trains in each direction (Mon-Sat) between Birmingham Snow Hill and Stratford-upon-Avon, with most Birmingham services continuing to Stourbridge Junction. Some peak period trains run through to Kidderminster, Worcester Foregate Street or Great Malvern.

There is no Sunday service.[2]
