Carlton railway station serves the suburb of Carlton in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England. The station is 3 miles (5 km) east of Nottingham on the Nottingham to Lincoln Line operated by East Midlands Trains.


It was opened on 3 August 1846. The station was renamed from Carlton & Netherfield to Carlton on 6 May 1974.

The station has two staggered platforms, there is a level crossing on Victoria Road, hence the staggered platforms to minimise delay to road traffic, and Carlton's centre is a considerable distance further away than Netherfield, where it is actually situated, but the nearby Netherfield railway station on the neighbouring Nottingham-Skegness line has already taken that name.

The station has a PlusBus scheme where train and bus tickets can be bought together for a cheaper price. It is in the same area as Beeston, Bulwell, Netherfield and Nottingham stations.


There is generally an hourly service from Carlton. Westbound to Matlock via Nottingham and eastbound to Newark Castle with a few continuing to Lincoln Central at peak times and in the evening. A limited service operates on Sundays (late afternoon onwards).
