Located on the main line out of London from Liverpool Street, Coborn Road station was opened by the Eastern Counties Railway in 1865.

The first station closed in 1919 with permanent closure following in 1946, with passengers now being served by the nearby Bow Road station on the District Line, Mile End on the District line and Central Line and the more recent Bow Church station on the DLR.
