Daybrook railway station was a railway station in Daybrook, Nottinghamshire. It was opened by the Great Northern Railway (Great Britain) on its Derbyshire and Staffordshire Extension in 1875–6 and closed in 1960.
It was on the descent from Arno Vale towards Leen Valley Junction where the line from Annesley joined. The line between Gedling and Carlton and Daybrook closed in 1960 because of mining subsidence in Mapperley Tunnel.
