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.
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.
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).
