The main station building is on a bridge over the tracks, on the Wharfedale Road (B4146). It is next to a railway depot and Tyseley Locomotive Works.
The Great Western Railway opened the station in 1906. It is on what was the GWR main line between London Paddington and Birkenhead Woodside. It was built with four platforms, but later British Railways took platforms 1 and 2 out of use.
Since the mid-1990s traffic on the line has increased. In 2007–08 Network Rail resignalled the line between Birmingham and Warwick, modified the track at Tyseley and restored platforms 1 and 2 to use. Work has also begun on upgrading the Solihull line by adding a third track.
Trains to and from Solihull are now able to use the new 60 mph (97 km/h) Tyseley North Junction. Two new junctions have been built at each end of the station, which allow non-stopping services between Solihull and Birmingham Snow Hill to cross at 60 mph.
Mondays to Saturdays, daytime service is generally two trains per hour outside peak hours.
