Station Platforms

The Lincoln train station platforms are numbered from 1 through 5.

  • Platforms 1 and 2 are bay platforms and serve the east, Peterborough and occasionally the towns of Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
  • Platform 3 is the nearest platform to the entrance. It serves all arrivals. It is also sometimes used for eastbound services originating from Lincoln.
  • Platform 4 serves arriving trains from the east. It is also used for westbound departures to Leicester through Nottingham. Trains going to Newark-on-Trent (Newark Castle and Newark North Gate) and Nottingham use this platform as well. Platform 4 is also used for attaching and detaching carriages.
  • Platform 5 serves the same purpose as Platform 4 except the Newark-on-Trent and Nottingham service. This platform is commonly used for westbound trains. However, these westbound trains have to wait in Lincoln before departing and that’s why it is mostly used by many Northern Rail services.
