(Snow Hill Lines &
Chiltern Main Line)
Olton was originally a basic station with a couple of platforms but was expanded to 4 platforms (2 island platforms) in the 1920s as the line was quadrupled as far as Lapworth. However now only one of those island platforms is in use.
The station is elevated with the booking office below the platforms at street level. On the platform are some basic facilities including a waiting room. Most services to Olton are operated by London Midland with some Chiltern services stopping in peak times.
