Chester Road (CRD)

Information
Type: National Rail (Cross-City Line)
Station code: CRD
Opened: 1863
Platforms: 2
Chester Road on the Northern half of the Cross-City Line is between Erdington and Wylde Green. The station was created by the London & North Western Railway in 1863 on its line from Birmingham to Sutton Coldfield.

Little remains of the original station with much change happening when the line going through Chester Road was electrified, though the original LNWR waiting room was preserved and is now at Market Bosworth on the Battlefield Line. The current station has fairly standard corrugated iron shelters and a large car park.
