Carnaby railway station was a minor railway station serving the village of Carnaby on the Yorkshire Coast Line from Scarborough to Hull, England. The station opened on 6 October 1846 by the York and North Midland Railway. It closed on 5 January 1970.

The western end of the station was to be the junction of the Bridlington and North Frodingham Light Railway.[1] The act of parliament for this line was granted in 1898 under the Light Railways Act 1896.[2] The line was to have been standard gauge and worked by steam locomotives throughout.[1] The line was never built.
