Radway Green and Barthomley
Sorry - this was on a branch!
Betley Road (I think)
Indeed it was on the NSR Audley branch line, which incidentally I cannot ever recall being used on this quiz so far.
As we are now on the Grand Junction Railway, I feel that the station you have named above, in the direction we are taking, would have been preceded by.....
However to continue from Betley Road....
Apologies for missing out Basford!
I think that station was preceded by Bridgeford
But to carry on.....
Will be absent from the quiz for the next few days as we are heading down to sunny West Sussex to attend a wedding.
Monmore Green (and the next named station of Ettingshall Road) were both stations on the LNWR Stour Valley Line, which we do not use on this journey.
We are still on the line of the Grand Junction Railway, heading towards Walsall.
To help matters, the next closed station after Bushbury is.....
I did look at Bridgeford which is quoted in some sources, but I couldn't find any evidence for where it was - so assumed it may just have been an earlier name for Great Bridgeford
Willenhall Bilston Street
This particular quiz goes back to 2011 and I still have notes made on the earliest researches on railway lines from that time period. I have been delving into my railway archives and RAILSCOT many years ago confirmed there were two distinct stations opened in 1837 by the Grand Junction Railway to the south of Norton Bridge station. Bridgeford station was in the village of Little Bridgeford, situated near to the manor house of Worston Hall, and was a short lived station that closed as early as 1840. It was situated to the north of Great Bridgeford station which was situated in the village of that same name.
Darlaston James Bridge
Walsall (1st station - 1847 to 1849)
This one really made me think, as there was a branch line to various collieries, where a station with a similar name had a short lived existence (called Ryder's Hayes) upon it that closed in 1858.
I therefore will post......
It was the Dewick man, my all-purpose scapegoat (place's name in his atlas, in red -- his "code" for "defunct as in the 19th century").

Lichfield Trent Valley Junction (SSR, 1847 to 1871)
