The station has suffered destruction a number of times. The station was hit by a German bomb in 1941 which destroyed the main station building. The replacement building also burned down in the 1950s!
Duddeston used to be adjacent to the Grand Junction Railway's engine shed (which opened in 1840) and a sizeable goods yard though these have now gone. The lines through the station were quadrupled in 1891 though only 1 platform is in use now (the other has become a buddleia plantation!)
As part of the Cross-City and Walsall Lines Duddeston has been electrified. However not all services on these busy lines stop at Duddeston. Just two services run in each direction every hour.
