Widney Manor railway station serves the Widney Manor area of Solihull in the West Midlands of England. The station is served by West Midlands Trains (who manage the station) and Chiltern Railways. A significant portion of the car park occupies what was the formation when the line was four tracks wide and the former GWR London Paddington - Birkenhead Woodside service passed through the station but did not stop. This service ceased with the electrification of the former LMS line from London Euston to Birmingham New Street in 1967.
