North Midland Railway Company

The North Midland Railway (NMR) was a railway line opened in 1840 from Derby to Leeds.

Both the Manchester & Leeds Railway and the abandoned Huddersfield & Leeds Railway schemes had proposed linking to the North Midland Railway at Normanton in order to connect through to Leeds.

In 1844 the company merged with the Birmingham & Derby Junction Railway and the Midland Counties Railway to form the Midland Railway (MR).
