Closing date[edit]

The source given on the article gives the closing date of the station as 1916. However, I've been looking at Ordnance Survey One-Inch sheets from the approximate period, and the station appears on the 1921 edition, and is absent from the 1927 edition. Is it a case of the OS not updating their mapping properly, or did the station remain open until the mid-1920s? Fingerpuppet (talk) 21:10, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

A Century of Railways around Birmingham and the West Midlands by John Boynton also gives 1863-1916, so I assume it's just a case of nobody telling the OS it was closed. —  Tivedshambo  (t|c) 23:03, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
