Rather surprisngly, East Midlands Trains have added an extra train to Nottingham from Cleethorpes. It is direct with no need to change at Lincoln.

The train leave Cleethorpes at 09:18 calling at Grimsby Town 09:26, Habrough 09:36, Barnetby 09:47 and Market Rasen 10:04 and then goes direct to Nottingham, arriving at 11:25

After the game the direct train leaves Nottingham at 17:40 calling at Market Rasen 18:43, Barnetby 19:02, Habrough 19:11, Grimsby Town 19:21 arriving back into Cleethorpes at 19:43. Seems a big time gap between Gy and Clee there though!!

Price is £17.60 for a day return, which can be bought on the day.

I remember going to Hull, Rotherham, Sheffield, Barnsley on the football special back in the 1979/80 season.
When was the last time one of these ran?

Not sure. It's rather unusual for a Train Operating Company to add an extra service to the schedule these days.

I think that train will be well gone by the time the special gets back!

I think I only ever went on three special trains, Wolves for the League Cup game when it broke down near Lincoln and we arrived late, Bolton and Hull on a Tuesday evening when hundreds forced the feeble fence down on the footpath from Boothferry Park Stadium station to the turnstiles and got in for free.

This sounds great, BUT you know the downside, don’t you? I bet the coppers will swarm over it and make it a dry train 😢.

I went on the special train to Liverpool when we lost 5-0.
