Corby Glen railway station was a station on the Great Northern Railway main line serving Corby Glen, Lincolnshire. It was west of the village on the Melton Mowbray road, and was originally named just Corby, but was renamed to avoid confusion with Corby station on the Midland Railway in Northamptonshire. The station closed in 1959.[1][2]
