Dim str As String
str = "Station 13"
Dim i As Integer
i = str.LastIndexOf(" ")
Value = str.Substring(i)

Try this regular expression:

Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions

Public Class RegexParser

  Public Shared Function ExtractNumber(ByVal input As String) As String

    Dim pattern As String = "\d+"

    Dim match As Match = Regex.Match(input, pattern)

    If match.Success Then
       Return match.Value
    End If

    Return ""

  End Function

End Class

Example usage:
  Dim number As String = RegexParser.ExtractNumber("Value = 13")
