List Of Railway Stations In The West Midlands
This is a list of railway stations within the West Midlands, a metropolitan county in central England which includes the cities of Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton. It includes all railway stations in the West Midlands that currently have regular timetabled train services, as well as certain stations outside the county which are within the area supported by the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive (WMPTE), better known by their corporate name, Centro. Transport within the West Midlands is subsidised by WMPTE, who since 2006 have used the brand name Network West Midlands to demonstrate the 'joined-up' nature of the regions bus and rail networks.
The West Midlands rail network is divided into five zones, centred on Birmingham city centre. This is mainly for the purpose of defining season ticket boundaries. For example, a ticket valid in zones 1 and 2 can be used for travel between any station in those zones, but cannot be used to travel to zone 3 or beyond. The outside boundary is formed by the railway stations at Wolverhampton, Bloxwich North, Blake Street, Coventry, Dorridge, Earlswood, Longbridge, Stourbridge Junction and Stourbridge Town, inclusively.

“Her personality had an architectonic quality; I think of her when I see some of the great London railway termini, especially St. Pancras, with its soot and turrets, and she overshadowed her own daughters, whom she did not understandmy mother, who liked things to be nice; my dotty aunt. But my mother had not the strength to put even some physical distance between them, let alone keep the old monster at emotional arms length.”
