Apart from being a frequent visitor to Lincoln as it is such a beautiful city I also worked for the University for a while. Obviously this entailed a lot of travelling and as I didn't drive at the time it meant that I became very familiar with Lincoln Station indeed.
It's hard to find somewhere to start because there are so many bad points. The station is dirty - on the platforms and inside the buildings. It's not very well laid out and signage is poor. The staff are not exactly welcoming. The cafe is terrible - high prices, poor selection, indifferent staff, cold and unwelcoming. Trains are often late, delayed or cancelled and the information relating to this is poor. Even when trains are running late the information presented is terribly poor. I once ended up on a train to peterborough because the announcer stated the train coming into the platform was the train for grimsby so I got on it! I just thank my lucky stars that I don't need to use the train to get to Lincoln these days.
