Rednal & West Felton railway station was a minor station on the GWR’s Paddington to Birkenhead main line. Today this is part of the Shrewsbury to Chester line. The distinctive red brick station building (now a private house) can still be seen on the west side of the line.
Express trains did not call at Rednal & West Felton, only local services.
On 7 June 1865 it was the site of a rail crash which killed 13 and injured 30. The driver of a heavy excursion train from Birkenhead to Shrewsbury failed to see a warning flag for track maintenance approaching the station and derailed.
