Bedford Midland station opened in 1859. In 1894 fast lines that bypassed the station were opened. The Midland railway ran the trains till the grouping when the LMS took control.
 
There was a second Bedford station which was called Bedford St Johns this was on the line from Oxford to Cambridge. Trains from Bedford to Bretchley used this station after the Bedford to Cambridge part of the line closed.
 
When this station  and signal box were closed the trains were moved to the Bedford Midland station bay platform.
