Lincolnshire Branch


The Lincolnshire Branch covers Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and services on the East Coast Main Line from Retford, Newark Northgate and Grantham.

Campaigns now

We are currently campaigning for:
  • Hourly trains Lincoln–Grimsby and Lincoln–Doncaster
  • Services Lincoln–Peterborough before 08.00 and after 18.00.
  • Improved Sunday services on all routes.
  • Restoration of regular freight services and seven days a week passenger services on the Brigg Line (Gainsborough to Barnetby).
  • A station for Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield airport at Finningley

Campaigns future

In the longer term we wish to see:
  • New or reopened stations to serve Cherry Willingham/Fiskerton, Washingborough/Heighington, Donington, Pinchbeck and the Deepings.
  • A feasibility study carried out into a possible ‘Park and Ride’ site at Hykeham station.
  • Major housing developments being planned where rail transport is already available or where stations could be constructed.
  • The safeguarding of disused railway land for future rail purposes, especially where freight transfer sidings could be sited.
