Wem railway station and level crossing 18 02 2009 175 passes with a tone

Wem railway station serves the town of Wem in Shropshire, England. The station is 10¾ miles (17 km) north of Shrewsbury on the Welsh Marches Line to Crewe.


The station has two platforms. There is a level crossing at the north end of the station. This is now the only way for passengers to cross the line at the station, since the station footbridge was taken down. The level crossing is where Aston Street becomes Aston Road.

Over the weekend of 8–9 August 2015 the signal box which was located next to the level crossing was demolished. The barriers have been controlled remotely from Shrewsbury since 2013 and the signal box was deemed obsolete.

There is also a small car park, which is accessed from Aston Street.

The signal box's Network Rail designation was "WM".


Monday to Saturdays there is generally a two-hourly service from Wem southbound to Shrewsbury and northbound to Crewe (although a few longer distance services also call) with six trains southbound and five northbound on Sundays. The latter are nearly all long distance trains between Manchester Piccadilly and Cardiff Central or Swansea
