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 circa 1846. The station was renamed from Carlton & Netherfield to Carlton on 6 May 1974.[1]

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.

Service[edit]

There is generally an hourly service from Carlton. Westbound to Leicester via Nottingham and Eastbound to Lincoln Central with a limited service on Sundays.
