Meanwhile, Detective Constable Lee Parsons has issued an appeal for witnesses.
He said: "As a rail replacement bus reached Grantham station, the driver was set upon by two men who had been on the bus.
"This vicious and completely unwarranted attack left the driver, a 53-year-old man from Cambridgeshire, requiring hospital treatment for a wound above his left eye, as well as bruises.
"Officers urgently want to hear from anyone who was near the station at the time, in particular the station car park where the attack took place.
"We are pursuing a number of lines of enquiry, including speaking to witnesses.
"And it is vitally important that we identify and speak to anyone who saw what happened.
"There is absolutely no excuse for this kind of frightening attack on a member of railway staff simply doing his job.
"And we will use everything in our power to identify those responsible and deal with them accordingly."
