East Midland Trains class 153376 at Sleaford station
 

East Midland Trains class 153376 at Sleaford station on the 24th May 2012 was still painted in Central Trains green. This unit had only I think just been repainted when EMT took over.

 
 

Sleaford railway station in 2012 still looks much as it did in LNER days. Thankfully this station was left alone in the 1970s. The removal of station buildings with bus shelters, never did happen here. The resoration of this station has made it a very nice station to wait for a train even if most of the station is not used.

East Midland Trains class 153310 and a class 156 at Sleaford station
East Midland Trains class 153310 and a class 156 at Sleaford station in 2012. This train was to Nottingham.

Sleaford station is on the Nottingham to Skegness line which runs west to east. Trains on the Peterborough to Spalding to Lincoln line also use this station that runs north to south. The Spalding trains come off the GN&GE line at Sleaford south juction and join the Skegness line at Sleaford East juction just to the east of the station. To get get back on the Lincoln line trains travel west to Sleaford west juction and then rejoin the Lincoln line at Sleaford North juction.

There is an avoiding line east of the town that let trains from Spalding to Lincoln bypass Sleaford. This went out of use for a number of years and all Spalding Lincoln freight trains had to come though the station. This avoiding line was never pulled up and is being reopened, so that some of the freight trains off the ECML can use this to open up more paths between Peterborough and Doncaster on the ECML.
