Collingham Railway Station is located in the village of Collingham, Nottinghamshire, England, situated on the Nottingham to Lincoln Line, owned by Network Rail and managed by East Midlands Trains (EMT) train operating company (TOC) who provide all services.

The station is unstaffed and offers no facilities other than two shelters, bicycle storage, timetables and two modern 'Help Points'. The full range of tickets for travel are purchased from the guard on the train at no extra cost, there are no retail facilities at this station.

Trains are frequent throughout the day and, according to local media, it is the second most used station on the Nottingham-Lincoln line, after Newark Castle. December 2008 was the dawn of the station having its most frequent service ever.[1]

EMT have run a daily return train from Lincoln to London St Pancras International Monday to Saturday since December 2008.

From March 2014 Network Rail is building a new 58-space car park for Collingham station. It should open in May 2014 following highway alterations by Nottingham County Council.[2] The new car park is the reason given by the Office of Rail and Road as to why the passenger numbers increased by 13,000 between 2014 and 2015.[3]
