Grimsby Town Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Grimsby Town railway station serves the town of Grimsby in North East Lincolnshire, England. It is operated by First TransPennine Express, and is also served by Northern Rail and East Midlands Trains. It opened in 1848 and was the terminus of the East Lincolnshire Line from Peterborough and Boston via Louth until the line's closure to passengers in 1970. The remaining line runs east to west, terminating at Cleethorpes on the northeast Lincolnshire seafront, and runs west to Habrough where the line to Barton-upon-Humber branches northwards, and further to Barnetby, where at Wrawby Junction the line splits into three, going to Scunthorpe/Doncaster/Sheffield, Gainsborough/Retford/Sheffield and Market Rasen/Lincoln/Newark. The station has the PlusBus scheme where train and bus tickets can be bought together at a saving, it is in the same area as Grimsby Docks and Cleethorpes stations. The station has three platforms in use, with an overall roof covering platforms 1 & 2. Platform 1 is the main eastbound through platform, whilst platform 2 is the corresponding platform for westbound trains but is also signalled for eastbound services if required. Platform 3 is the outer face of the southern island platform and is located outside the train shed - this was formerly a through platform used by Doncaster & Lincoln trains but is now only accessible from the west and is normally used by EMT trains from the Lincoln direction that turn back here. The main facilities (ticket office, buffet & waiting room) are all located on platform 1. The station was refurbished by TransPennine Express in 2007/2008. Brand new departure screens have been fitted and are now in use, along with an automated announcement system (CIS). The ticket office has also been refurbished, the refurbishment includes new lighting, seating, flooring and a refurbished ticket desk. The waiting room on platform 2 and the station buffet have also been refurbished. Two new lifts at a cost of £2 million were installed in 2011 and were opened by Grimsby MP Austin Mitchell on Tuesday 19 July 2011.
