Perry Barr Railway Station is a railway station in Perry Barr, Birmingham, England.
Although rebuilt around the time of electrification in the 1960s, it stands on the site of the original Grand Junction Railway station of 1837, and so is the oldest station on its original site in the city, and one of the oldest continually-operated station sites in the world. The pedestrian entrance is on the A34 Walsall Road.
It has two platforms, one each side of the two operating lines, with no points or sidings. The ticket office is on a bridge over the tracks, which are below street level.
As well as local residents, shops and businesses, it serves:Alexander Stadium
Perry Barr Stadium
Perry Hall Park

a number of bus services, including the Outer Circle

The typical Monday-Saturday daytime service sees two trains per hour in each direction between Walsall and Birmingham New Street (and hence onwards to Wolverhampton via the Stour Valley Line) that are operated by Class 323 electric trains. This service is reduced to one train per hour in the evenings and on Sundays. There are a small number of early morning and late evening trains on weekdays that are operated by Class 170 diesel trains and extend past Walsall to either Hednesford or Rugeley Trent Valley.
The station has in the past been served by a limited number of through trains from Walsall towards Birmingham International, but these no longer operate. The line also sees occasional use for diverted passenger trains between New Street & Wolverhampton (and points north), usually when the direct route via Dudley Port is closed for engineering work.
