Bulwell Forest railway station was a former station in Nottingham on the Great Northern Railway Nottingham to Shirebrook line.[2]

The station should not be confused with the Bulwell Forest tram stop of the Nottingham Express Transit (NET) system, which is some 750 metres (2,460 ft) to the north-west. The tram stop is situated on the alignment of the former Midland Railway route from Nottingham to Worksop, which is now shared between the NET and the Robin Hood railway line, but there was never a railway station at its location.[3]
