Coalbrookdale railway station in July 2009

The Telford Steam Railway has aspirations to take possession of the up track passing through the station as part of its southern extension.

The station building at Longville (another station on the Wenlock, Craven Arms and Lightmoor Extension railway) was a similar but reduced version of that at Coalbookdale.

Coalbrookdale railway station is a waypoint on the South Telford Heritage Trail.
