Wilnecote railway station is a small unmanned station serving Wilnecote 1.5 miles (2 km) south of Tamworth town centre in Staffordshire, England. The station is situated beneath a bridge which carries the former A5 Watling Street.

It was opened in 1842 by the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway as Wilnecote and Fazeley, the name being shortened in 1904.[1]

Services[edit]

Wilnecote is served by the hourly CrossCountry service between Birmingham New Street and Nottingham with the majority of the Northbound services coming from Cardiff Central.[2] West Midlands Trains manage the station but do not provide any train services there.
