Showell's Dictionary of Birmingham, discussing railway accidents in the city, notes that:
Mr. Pipkins, Stationmaster at Winson Green, was killed Jan. 2. 1877.
but does not elaborate as to the circumstances.
There is some evidence of the station on the ground today, as the two tracks running currently through the site of the station split at the location of an island platform.
The station was not the only one to bear the name. Following the closure of Winson Green station, the nearby Soho and Winson Green station was renamed Winson Green in 1965. However it too was closed in 1972.
