Anti-social drinkers could be stopped from boozing outside Lincoln train station.
Police powers to call time on problem street drinking in the city could be extended to take in railway-owned land around St Mary's Street.
East Midlands Trains and British Transport Police are looking into the change following concerns from city councillors and the public.
Under an existing Designated Public Places Order, brought in by the City of Lincoln Council, officers can order nuisance boozers to stop drinking and hand over their alcohol.
They can also order people to leave the DPPO area and can even issue a fine of up to £500 or a fixed penalty notice.
But land around the train station falls outside of the existing DPPO zone introduced this summer.
Spokesman for East Midlands Trains, Emma Knight, said: "While the city council's designated public places order does not currently cover the station, we are working with British Transport Police and the city council to see if this can be extended to cover the station.
"We are always looking to do more in partnership with the local community to help ensure the station offers a welcoming environment for our passengers and the local community.
"We are committed to working with our partners to reduce any instances of anti-social behaviour around Lincoln station."
Jackie Kirk, warden at St Mary le Wigford Church, which supports homeless people through its BeAttitude project, said: "The people that are drinking by the side of the railway station are not engaging with BeAttitude."
She agreed that a problem with anti-social behaviour and drinking exists because the area is outside the DPPO limits.
But taxi driver Dave Smalley, 67, said the rules must be enforced.
"We need visitors and tourists to come to Lincoln but the first thing they see when they get here is a load of drunks, which is disgusting," said Mr Smalley, who lives in North Hykeham.
"I'd like to see the order extended to include the land around the train station but I don't think it will make a difference.
"I don't think there will be anyone to enforce it.
"It's all right having rules, but someone needs to enforce them."
A designated public place order only gives police powers to act if drinking is causing public disorder.
It does not apply to peaceful activities like families having a picnic in the park with a glass of wine.
