Castle Bromwich railway station. Was a railway station in Birmingham opened by the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway in 1842. It was on the line into Birmingham Lawley Street from Water Orton. In the mid-Twentieth century it was the alighting point for the British Industries Fair Regular passenger services finished in 1968 but afterwards occasional excursions served the station for a few years but unknown when these ceased. The station has since been demolished.

The Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway merged with others in 1844 to become part of the Midland Railway. Further information about this station and the railway line can be found at http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/c/castle_bromwich/index.shtml

The British Industries Fair was an important exhibition centre in Birmingham, England.

The large complex of buildings was built in 1920 and was situated between Castle Bromwich Aerodrome and the railway line. For two weeks every year it was the most visited attraction in the country. In 1933, the first diesel locomotive arrived for display at the BIF.

The nearby Castle Bromwich railway station received many important visitors for the BIF, including King George V and Queen Mary in 1928, the Duke of York, Princess Mary and Lord Lascelles. They were often entertained afterwards by the Bradfords at Castle Bromwich Hall.

The site was sold in 1960, along with that of the airfield. The buildings and the sites were cleared for the construction of the Castle Vale housing estate. The BIF was replaced by the National Exhibition Centre.
