Hall Green (HLG)

Type: National Rail (Shakespeare Line)
Station code: HLG
Opened: 1908
Platforms: 2
Hall Green was opened in 1908 by the Great Western Railway on the North Warwickshire Line (nowadays known as the Shakespeare Line), serving the Hall Green area of South-East Birmingham and is located in between Spring Road and Yardley Wood.

The station once had a goods yard though this was closed in the late 1960s. Much of the station is as built, and in the standard GWR style of the early 20th century. The station is still in good condition though most facilities and buildings are concentrated on the Birmingham platform.

Hall Green still has a staffed ticket office though staffing is a bit less than the station's heyday in the late 1920s when the station had a staff of 15! [1]
