Cosham railway station serves the former village of Cosham, today a northern suburb of the city of Portsmouth in southern England.

Opened in 1847 by the London and South Western Railway (LSWR), it is located on the West Coastway Line which runs between Brighton and Southampton. It is currently served by the South West Trains, Southern, and First Great Western train operating companies.

Local Civic Trust organization The Portsmouth Society has expressed its concern regarding low levels of usage at the station and urged that local planning policies should encourage its use [2]

Services

Westward, the line through Cosham leads to Portchester and Fareham, eastward to a junction (part of the local "Railway Triangle") between lines leading south to Hilsea and Portsmouth and east to Bedhampton and Havant.

Although the nearest station eastward is Bedhampton, until December 2007 there were no direct services calling at both Cosham and Bedhampton. Passengers between these two stations had to travel to Hilsea, the next station south on the Portsmouth line, and change trains there. Today there is a very limited late evening service provided by South West Trains.
