    When the station was opened in 1886, it was as the terminus of the Mersey Railway's line from Liverpool via the Mersey Railway Tunnel. In 1891 the line was extended southwards to Rock Ferry.

    There is an hourly service at Gypsy Lane in each direction, which makes it 17 trains a day. Four of these compromise the through service to/from Whitby Town, whilst the rest run between Newcastle, Darlington and Nunthorpe.

    Lincoln Central is mostly operated by East Midlands Trains, which is to be taken over by a new franchise in August 2019, East Midlands Railway. One of the new franchise's promises is to introduce an hourly service between Peterborough and Doncaster via Lincoln Central.

    In the 1970s, the London Underground proposed the new Fleet line (now Jubilee) to Lewisham via New Cross. Unfortunately, that never happened due to funding issues, as the line went as far as Charing Cross in 1979 before being diverted as part of a different extension to Stratford in 1999.
