Frinkley Lane Level Crossing goes across the East Coast Main Line immediately north of Grantham Station, just to the east of Marston village. The lane and crossing form part of a public bridleway. This section of line is incredibly fast. Trains can travel upwards of 100 mph and caution should be exercised for both those crossing and spotting / photographing. The crossing is guarded with simple fencing and gates and there is an emergency telephone for those moving livestock – the surrounding area is very agricultural. If the wind is blowing from the south, the audible warning of another crossing can give bystanders warning of oncoming trains, though this should not be relied upon.
LNER Azumas are currently the most frequent sighting here with the occasional Class 91 substitute. Freight and ECS movements are regular and common. Class 66 haulage is frequent and the DB Royal Mail Class 325 can also pass by here. Hull Trains Class 802s and occasional TransPennine test services run as of 2021. Grand Central Class 180s also pass by.
