The original Long Eaton railway station was built in 1839 for the Midland Counties Railway, which shortly joined the North Midland Railway and the Birmingham and Derby Junction Railway to form the Midland Railway.

Situated on Meadow Lane, it was the second station from Nottingham. In 1847, a second station was opened on Nottingham Road on the newly built Erewash Valley Line.

The first station was closed in 1862 when the junctions were realigned and Trent railway station was built.

In 1863, the Nottingham Road station was replaced by yet another on Station Street, which remained in service until 1967.

Sawley Junction was renamed Long Eaton the year following the closure of the latter.
