- Great Bridge South railway station
Great Bridge South railway station was the only station on a link line between the
South Staffordshire Lineand the Birmingham Snow Hill-Wolverhampton Low Level Line. It was opened in 1866. As with a lot of passenger stations, it closed during the years of the First World Warbut reopened in 1920 and remained operational until British Railclosed the station through the Beeching Axein 1964.
Despite another station existing in Great Bridge from 1866, the station was not given the name of South until after nationalisation in 1950.
