Two trains an hour operate in each direction, two eastbound towards Leicester, Cambridge and Stansted Airport and two westbound to Birmingham New Street.


Tickets for the bus to the airport can be bought from any rail retailer. Tickets to Birmingham International can be routed via New Street or the bus; although the same price these are not interchangeable. The bus connection is often quicker if travelling from the east (Leicester).

The station incorporates a bus interchange providing four direct bus connections per hour to Tamworth and Birmingham International Airport, taking around fifteen minutes to the airport.

Facilities on site include a 200-space car park and a ticket office. Many signs are in place for local access to the station.


After a gap of 39 years, a new station Coleshill Parkway was opened on the site of the former Coleshill (Forge Mills). The new station was originally scheduled to open in March 2007, but construction delays postponed the opening to 18 September 2007. The new station cost £9 million to build.[3]

Current station

However this second Coleshill station, the former Forge Mills, was closed in March 1968.
