Ruskington railway station serves the village of Ruskington in Lincolnshire, England. It opened in 1882 as part of the Great Northern and Great Eastern Joint Railway between Sleaford and Lincoln. It closed in 1961 but was reopened in 1975.
The station is unstaffed and offers limited facilities other than free car parking, two shelters, bicycle storage, timetables and modern 'Help Points'. The full range of tickets for travel are purchased from the guard on the train at no extra cost, there are no retail facilities at this station.
In 2014 work was undertaken to improve access at the station. This included the construction of new railway bridges and disabled access ramps to safely cross the lines. Previous access from one platform to the other was by crossing both railway lines.
There is a basic hourly service in each direction (Mon-Sat) between Lincoln Central and Sleaford that calls here - during the daytime southbound services run to Peterborough, whilst a few northbound trains continue to Doncaster.
There is no Sunday service.
