Sandwell and Dudley railway station sits roughly half way between Birmingham and Dudley just outside Oldbury. It was opened in the mid-19th century, originally named Oldbury, along the Odbury Branch Line. In the ‘80s, the station was fully rebuilt with longer platforms and opened with a new name. It might not look big, but the busy commuter station serves the best part of a million passengers a year from its two platforms. There is a ticket office open everyday including Sundays and self-service ticket machines. Today, the station and the trains that pass through are managed by West Midlands Trains, though there are several Virgin Train departures throughout the week. There are up to four trains an hour heading eastbound to Birmingham New Street in 9 minutes and two an hour direct to Dudley Port in 3 minutes.
There are several reasons to hop off the train at Sandwell and Dudley station. The nearby Oak House Museum is a fine example of a 17th-century half-timbered Tudor structure, while the 660 acres of woodland at the Sandwell Valley Country Park provides some lovely walks.
