The Nottingham Suburban Railway was a 3-mile-52-chain long railway line serving the north-eastern suburbs of Nottingham. It was opened in August 1889 and closed in 1954. It ran from Trent Lane junction in Sneinton, about two-thirds of a mile to the east of the Great Northern Railway's then terminus at London Road, through to the same company's Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension line at Daybrook, passing through three stations and four tunnels en route.
