Lincoln station is a disused train station in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States. Service ended in 2012 after the construction of the Pinnacle Bank Arena led to a new station being built several blocks to the west.[2] The station, also known as Burlington Northern Railroad Depot,[3] has been converted into an antique mall.
