Barlaston railway station serves the village of Barlaston in Staffordshire, England. This station was opened on 17 April 1848 and is on the first line opened by the North Staffordshire Railway on that date.

Trains no longer stop at Barlaston (the Stafford to Stoke-on-Trent local service was withdrawn when the route was temporarily closed for major refurbishment in 2003 as part of the WCML Modernisation scheme and never reinstated). Passengers are now served by bus service X1 operated by BakerBus which acts as the station's official Rail Replacement Bus, on which valid rail tickets (including Advance Purchase tickets) to/from Wedgwood and Barlaston are officially accepted. Access to the platforms is no longer possible as the station has been fenced off.

Unlike neighbouring Stone, Barlaston is not included as a stop on the Crewe - London Euston service operated by London Midland.
