Network Rail and the Department for Transport have created a £20m fund for the construction of new stations across the UK.
This is the second New Stations Fund competition, after the first one was launched in January 2013.
The intital £20m funding pot went towards the building of five stations including Pye Corner in Wales, Newcourt station in Exeter and Lea Bridge in London.
Ilkeston station near Derby and Kenilworth station near Coventry are still under construction and will be finished next year.
Councils and train operating companies will have until November to apply for funding, with successful projects revealed next year.
Network Rail director of stations Norrie Courts said: “The launch of the second round of the New Stations Fund demonstrates an ongoing commitment to the delivery of new station projects across the country.
“The programme is delivered by working in partnership with local bodies who contribute third-party funding in order to realise longer-term benefits to passengers, customers, local communities and the wider economy.
“The New Stations funding stream represents an important part of the ambitious investment programme in Britain’s railways, delivering real and visible improvements for passengers and customers.”
