Wixams railway station is a new railway station that is due to be built on the Midland Main Line for the Wixams new town development in Bedfordshire, England.[1] The station will be between Bedford and Flitwick.

The station was due to be completed in 2015,[2] but Network Rail withdrew their promise of funding. In 2017, Gallagher Estates applied for funding from the government for the station.[3]

In July 2017, it was reported the site would be located further north as part of the East West Rail Link project.[4]
