Possible improvements to Brigg railway station were considered by the Town Council this week.
One idea is to put a noticeboard at the bottom of Station Road and Albert Street, containing train times for the Saturdays-only service to Cleethorpes, Grimsby, Barnetby, Kirton Lindsey, Gainsborough, Retford and Sheffield.
Other options being considered are floral displays on the station and "Bucket and Spade" outings to Cleethorpes, with cheaper tickets available for group bookings.
Coun Mike Campion said he supported anything that would improve the railway station but expressed caution about spending much money on what he described as "basically a deserted area" with so few trains a week. Any floral displays would be seen, in the main, by goods train drivers passing through the station!
Coun James Truepenny, chairing the meeting, stressed: "We need to show we care about the railway station."
Coun Ben Nobbs suggested there was a better chance of getting local people to use the station if it looked nicer. And Coun Ann Eardley wondered whether it might be possible to create "raised beds" for flowers at the station, fashioned from old railway sleepers.
Coun Campion suggested the council needed to look at this in greater detail and it was agreed to form a small group of councillors to do so and report back to their colleagues. Costings will also be drawn up.
