Coseley railway station is located in the Coseley area of the borough of Dudley, West Midlands, England. It is situated on the Rugby-Birmingham-Stafford branch of the West Coast Main Line. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by London Midland.

History[edit]

The present Coseley station opened in 1902. It replaced an earlier station, named Deepfields and Coseley, which opened in 1852 and was situated 400 yards along the track.

Services[edit]

Coseley is typically served by three trains per hour each way.[1]

Two of these are local services calling at all stations between Wolverhampton and Walsall, via Birmingham New Street operated by London Midland. These services are operated by Class 323 / Class 350 Electric Multiple Units.

One is a longer distance London Midland service, to or from Liverpool Lime Street. The southbound service then runs non-stop into Birmingham New Street. The northbound service calls at Wolverhampton and stations to Crewe & Liverpool Lime Street. This service is operated by Desiro Class 350 units, which use overhead power.
