Shifnal railway station is a station on the former Great Western Railway's London (Paddington) to Birkenhead via Birmingham (Snow Hill) line. The station is managed by London Midland, who provide the majority of services that call here (it is also served by Arriva Trains Wales, primarily on Sundays)
The station (opened in 1849) is located on a viaduct/causeway high above the town itself. It is on the Shrewsbury to Wolverhampton Line. When Shifnal was controlled by semaphore signalling it boasted a three-storey signal box.
There is a basic hourly off-peak service in each direction (Mon-Sat), westbound to Shrewsbury and eastbound to Wolverhampton and Birmingham New Street run by London Midland. Additional trains call at peak periods. Arriva Trains Wales run a single late night service each way (Mon-Sat) and also provide a two-hourly Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury service each way on Sundays (some trains run through to Chester and Birmingham International), as no London Midland services operate on the route.
