Lye railway station serves the Lye area of Stourbridge, in the West Midlands of England. The station is managed by London Midland, who provide the majority of train services; Chiltern Railways also operate a small number of trains. It is situated on the Birmingham-Stourbridge line.

History

Lye station was opened in 1863 by the Stourbridge Railway, on their line from Stourbridge Junction to Old Hill. This was later taken over by the Great Western Railway, who incorporated it into their line to Birmingham.

Lye railway station has the joint-shortest name (Lye) in the United Kingdom.

London Midland are proposing the closure of the ticket office.[1]

Services

The typical Monday-Saturday daytime service is a train every 30 minutes between Stourbridge Junction, Birmingham Snow Hill and Stratford-upon-Avon. Trains run alternately via Whitlocks End and via Dorridge, though the latter service is curtailed at Dorridge in the evenings. On Sundays, trains are hourly.[2]

There are additional services at peak times, including occasional Chiltern Railways services to London Marylebone.
