Blakedown Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Blakedown railway station serves the English village of Blakedown, Worcestershire. It was opened (as Churchill station) in 1852, and was later known as Churchill & Blakedown before adopting its current name (the signal box still uses the old name, as shown above). The station is unstaffed, with only a basic shelter on each platform. There is a level crossing immediately to the west of the platforms, and in the absence of a footbridge or subway this is also the only method for passengers to cross the tracks. The platforms were lengthened in the 1990s to allow longer trains to call (see image - the hollow space and the white fence mark the extension). This is because Blakedown is within the Birmingham commuter band and usage increased. All trains serving Blakedown are now operated by London Midland. As of the summer 2006 timetable, the only other operator's train to stop at the station was a single Chiltern Railways Kidderminster-London service which called in the morning rush hour - this however no longer does so. Trains run every 30 minutes each way, with off-peak trains terminating at Kidderminster westbound & eastbound services running alternately to Dorridge and Whitlocks End. There is a two-hourly service from the station each way on Sundays. Since August 2012 the signalling system has been altered, with the former signal box having been abolished and control of the nearby crossing & signals transferred to the West Midlands SCC at Saltley.
