Erdington railway station is a railway station serving the Erdington area of Birmingham, England. It is situated on the Redditch-Birmingham New Street-Lichfield Cross-City Line.

Contents

The station was opened in 1862 on Sheep Lane, later known as Station Road.

Pedestrian access to the former LMS station is via Station Road. The station is above road level, as the line here is on an embankment. A new passenger shelter on the northbound platform was built and opened in November 2006.

The letters LMS can still be seen on the adjacent road bridge. At the foot of the ramp to the southbound platform there is a sculpture by Ronald Rae entitled Insect and Celtic Cross.

Services

The station is served by London Midland with local Network West Midlands branded "Cross-City" services, operated by Class 323 electrical multiple units. The station is served by six trains an hour in each direction Mondays to Saturdays (every 30 minutes each way on Sundays), with an average journey time to Birmingham New Street of around 12 minutes.

Access for disabled passengers

There are ramps accessing both platforms at Erdington Station.
