At Tipton Rail Station, there was a level crossing, though this was closed in January 2010 on the opening of a relief road which undercuts the railway.
The station was closed in early 2010 for refurbishment which allowed the platforms to be extended to accommodate longer trains than previously.
The redevelopment also included new waiting areas, easier access to the station, increased car park size, new subway, improved security and a new bus interchange.
During this time, DN08TLJ was hired by NX West Midlands to run rail replacement services between Tipton and Coseley, stopping on Owen Street in Tipton.
