The Doncaster-Lincoln line is a railway line in England. It runs from the East Coast Main Line at Doncaster south east to Lincoln.

Services on the line are provided by East Midlands Railway and Northern,[1] with a few continuing through Lincoln to the Peterborough-Lincoln line.

The towns and villages served by the route are listed below.

The line is part of the former Great Northern and Great Eastern Joint Railway.[2]

Between Doncaster and Gainsborough the line passes between Finningley and Blaxton. There used to be a station at this point and as this is the site of the new Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield, there has been discussion about constructing a new station to serve the airport. Planning permission for a station was granted in 2008.[3]
