Armitage Railway Station was opened on the Trent Valley line in 1847 by the London and North Western Railway. The Station served the villages of Armitage and Handsacre. In 1923 the Station was absorbed into the London Midland and Scottish Railway and in 1948 during nationalization it became part of the London Midland Region of British Railways. The Station was closed by the British Transport Commission in 1960, a casualty of railway rationalization. The tracks remain (April 2014) and form part of the very busy West Coast Main Line.
