Granville Street railway station was a railway station in Birmingham, England. It was the original terminus of the Midland Railway's Birmingham West Suburban Railway. The station operated between 1875 and 1885. It was deemed to be too far from the city centre to be used as a terminus, and was closed when the BWSR was extended to New Street on a new alignment which bypassed it. Most traces of the station were removed by 1887 when the now spur line was extended to create Central Goods railway station.
