A recent program on my local television station (Notts Tv) suggested that Nottingham once had 26 railway stations after some research I came up with the following list of railway stations that once existed within the city of Nottingham and the Nottingham Greater Urban Area.

Taking the search parameters to include Nottingham City and outwards to include Gedling, Bulwell, Trowell Moor, Beeston and West Bridgford the stations were:

This gives us a grand total of 30 stations further divided into 26 stations for passengers and goods and 4 stations for freight only, so the quoted figure of 26 stations is accurate if you exclude the railway stations that were freight only. In modern times Nottingham has just four railway stations open and two of those stations (Netherfield & Carlton) have a limited passenger service.
