Gravelly Hill (GVH)

Information
Type: National Rail (Cross-City Line)
Station code: GVH
Opened: 1862
Gravelly Hill is near Gravelly Hill Interchange, which is more commonly known as the Spaghetti Junction! In fact trains heading to the next stop Aston have to pass under some of the concrete fly overs.

The station was opened by the London & North Western Railway in 1862 and is now a station on the Cross-City Line between Aston and Erdington. The line was electrified in 1992 which was also when most of the station's buildings were "modernised" into the bus shelters now used. However the booking office is an original feature.

London Midland serve the station with destinations including Birmingham New Street, Lichfield, Sutton Coldfield and Redditch.
