Railway type and traffic
The passenger service is a London Midland Class 153 DMU which provides the hourly Coventry - Nuneaton service.
Freight traffic consists of mainly freightliner and intermodal traffic with automotive trains and an engineers service from Westbury - Bescot which normally produces a Colas Class 70. On the odd occasion you will get rail tours along the line too.

location so please check the page. This link will take you to what is happening 'around now'. Dates and times can be changed at the top of the page.
The environment is on the edge of the Bermuda Park Industrial Estate, whilst it is quite busy during the day, although it's not an ideal place to come to after dark.
There is car parking spaces on St. Georges Way adjacent to the station as well as Bermuda Park.
An hourly passenger train service operates between Coventry and Nuneaton. If coming by bus, Stagecoach provides a very frequent service on their routes between Nuneaton and Bedworth. Ask the bus driver for the Griff Island (the big traffic island), then walk to the location, walking should take about 10 minutes.Click here to set up your location for directions to this location
Nuneaton Town Centre is a short drive or bus ride away, or a couple of minutes on the train. Or there's a McDonald's, KFC and Subway on the other part of Bermuda Park across the A444., which provide ample car park spaces and toilets.
The nearest place to stay is Days Inn on Bermuda Industrial Estate.

When the sun is out, the Southbound shot is preferred from about 13:00 onwards, although the Northbound shot is OK once the sun goes over. Of course if it's cloudy then any angle is doable.
As for video's, the noise disruption from the estate is minimal as there's mainly offices and a Cash & Carry - which is set back - in the immediate area.
