Moseley railway station in Moseley, Birmingham, England, operated from 1867 to 1941. It was opened by the Midland Railway on the Camp Hill Line. A previously named Moseley station on the same line changed its name to Kings Heath station upon the opening of the station.[1] From 1923, the station was operated by the London Midland and Scottish Railway .

In 2007 there were proposals to reopen the station and to resume local passenger services along the Camp Hill Line,[2] in which case the station would be served by trains between Birmingham Moor Street and Kings Norton railway station.[3] In 2013 the proposal was shelved indefinitely.[4]

In 2016, the newly created West Midlands Combined Authority, revived the plans to restore local passenger services to the line, and declared it one of their priority transport schemes to be delivered by 2025.[5][6]

In 2019, the project to re-open the stations at Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell received £15 million in Government funding, with construction due to start in 2020 and aimed for completion in time for the 2022 Commonwealth Games.[7]
