Cole station was at the northern end of the Dorset Central Railway, this joined with the Somerset Central Railway and became the Somerset and Dorset Railway in 1862. The station had a small goods yard controlled by a small signal box on the up platform which was also a break between Evercreech Junction and Wincanton.

The goods yard closed on 5th April 1965, the signal box on 31st May 1965 and the station closed on 7th March 1966.

The site of the sidings and goods shed are now occupied by new houses but the original railway station, the Station Master’s house and the Railway Hotel still exist. All are now private dwellings.
