Tipton railway station is located in the town of Tipton in the borough of Sandwell, West Midlands, England and was known as Tipton Owen Street until 1968. It is situated on the West Coast Main Line. The station is operated by West Midlands Trains, and all services are provided by West Midlands Railway.
At the southern end of the station, there was a level crossing, though this was closed in January 2010 on the opening of a relief road which undercuts the railway.
The station was closed in early 2010 for refurbishment which allowed the platforms to be extended to accommodate longer trains than previously. The redevelopment also included new waiting areas, easier access to the station, increased car park size, new subway, improved security and a new bus interchange.
During Monday-Saturday daytime, there is a train every half-hour, which calls at all stations between Wolverhampton and Walsall via Birmingham New Street and Aston. On Sundays, there is typically one train per hour between Birmingham and Wolverhampton only.
Three Main West Midlands Railway Express services call at this railway station - the first is a morning peak service from Stafford to New Street; the second evening peak service from Birmingham New Street to Shrewsbury; and the third is the final service from Birmingham New Street to Crewe.
