Gedling and Carlton railway station was a former railway station built to serve the villages of Gedling and Carlton in Nottinghamshire. It was opened by the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain) on its Derbyshire Extension in 1875–6 and closed in 1960.
It was on the climb from the junction at Colwick with the Ambergate, Nottingham, Boston and Eastern Junction Railway into Nottingham London Road.
Mapperley Tunnel was extremely unstable due to mining subsidence and the heavy traffic through it. In 1925 part of the roof collapsed, blocking the line, and this was part of the reason that this section of line closed prematurely.
