The Midland opened line through Kirby Muxloe in 1848. The following year the Midland opened its line from Coalville Town to Burton-on-Trent, making the line through Kirby Muxloe part of its through route between Leicester and Burton-on-Trent.
In the 1990s BR planned to restore passenger services between Leicester and Burton as the second phase of its Ivanhoe Line project. However, after the privatisation of British Rail in 1995 this phase of the project was discontinued. In 2009 the Association of Train Operating Companies published a £49 million proposal (Connecting Communities: Expanding Access to the Rail Network) to restore passenger services to the line that would include reopening a station at Kirby Muxloe.
