North Midland Railway

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 NMR at Normanton in order to connect through to Leeds.

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

The MR became part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) on 1 January 1923 under the Railways Act 1921.
