1900 1:2,500 OS map. With the opening of the Nottingham Suburban Railway in 1889 the goods yard at Daybrook was upgraded and enlarged. A brick goods shed has now been proved over the siding running along the old northern boundary. Another parallel siding has been laid alongside it with two further parallel sidings to the north. A cattle pen is now shown at the end of the dock. The position of the yard crane is no longer identified but a later map confirmed that it stayed in its original position. The down side now also has two sidings; one runs behind the west end of the up platform, whilst the other shorter siding runs up to the end of the platform. The station has also now been provided with a footbridge. Daybrook Junction with the Nottingham Suburban Railway is seen to the east of Mansfield Road with Daybrook Junction signal box opposite the junction. The triangle of land to the north of the station would become the site of the Be-Ro flour mill in 1931.
