Historyedit

It was opened in 1858 British Rail closed the station pre-Beeching in 1962 Two railways/routes served the station - originally the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway and the South Staffordshire Railway, which later became the Great Western Railway and London, Midland and Scottish Railway through amalgamation of the London and North Western Railway respectively

Today's usageedit

The station's pedestrian entrance from Station Road is still in existence, though it has long been blocked off by a fence

Today, Goods trains still use the track where the station once stood, on their way to the nearby Round Oak Steel Terminal

Re-openingedit

In January 2012, plans were announced to run a passenger service between Stourbridge Junction and Brierley Hill, with stations being re-opened along the route, including Brierley Hill The service would be operated by railcars built by Parry People Movers, who built the Class139 units which run the Stourbridge Town service Another plan is for the entire line to re-open the South Staffs Line with passenger and freight trains between Stourbridge and Walsall2 In late 2015 plans emerged to re-open the Dudley Port railway station to Stourbridge line as the fact of trams serving on the same line as freight trains became extremely unlikely
