Information
Type: National Rail (Chase Line)
Station code: WSL
Opened: 1849
Platforms: 3
The first station in Walsall was Bescot Bridge in 1837 built near Bescot Stadium station, but in 1849 a proper city centre station was built in Walsall by the South Staffordshire Railway on a route to Dudley. Further routes and lines were added to Walsall over the following decades.

The current station buildings date from the late 1970s when the old station was demolished as part of a major retail regeneration project. The Saddlers Centre shopping mall has been built atop the station and is where the main entrance and concourse is. Another entrance is via station street.

Nowadays Walsall is host to services on the Chase Line between Birmingham New Street and Rugeley and services between Walsall and Wolverhampton (via New Street).
