I am visiting Lincoln tomorrow and i am also going to travel on the sundays only service to Cleethorpes. Please can anyone tell me what units are booked to work the following services on sundays please?

12:05 Lincoln to Cleethorpes

13:00 Lincoln to Newark

15:45 Lincoln to Newark

17:08 Lincoln to Nottingham

Are there any services into or out of Lincoln on sundays that are formed of 2 units ie: 3 or 4 cars and if so on what services.

Cheers in advance

Usually Leicester/Nottingham - Lincoln services are 156 with the odd 158. Services from Newark to Lincoln Central/Grimsby Town are usually 153 but at times are 156

It will most probably be either a class 153 or 156, I don't think 158s are seen at Lincoln often.
Actually, there are several booked workings per day for 158s into Lincoln. This information is related to Monday-Friday services, though - so probably isn't much use in answer to the OP. But for reference, a 158 usually turns up on the following runs (I'm presuming this is a single diagram);

2L54 0650 Sleaford to Leicester via Lincoln
2L63 0925 Leicester to Lincoln
2L62 1142 Lincoln to Leicester
2L71 1325 Leicester to Lincoln
2L70 1530 Lincoln to Leicester
2L81 1725 Leicester to Lincoln

I'm unsure what happens to it after 2L81.

In addition, 2L91 the 2225 Nottingham to Lincoln usually produces a 158.

It's been quite awhile since I used a Sunday service from Lincoln, but the Cleethorpes service used to form the 15:00 Nottingham service on return, and during the summer was usually formed of a single 156.

There is a 12.02 departure from Lincoln to Cleethorpes, guessing that is a typo.
Well, there is the 2T29 1135 Newark North Gate-Cleethorpes (which leaves Lincoln at 12:02).
This was formed of a 153+156 when I saw it at a sunny Cleethorpes today. Could anyone tell me which units it was formed of.
Thanks, Sam

i travelled on the unit from Newark to Cleethorpes and then Cleethorpes to Lincoln, it was formed of 156406 & 153313, departing Newark at 1135 its a good job the service was a 3 car with the amount of people who board and got off at Lincoln, it was fairly bus from Lincoln to Grimsby where a few people got off but more got on, for the 45 mins i spent at Cleethorpes it wasnt bad at all infact it was red hot and busiest ive ever seen Cleethorpes.

I know it is the summer and the weather was reasonably good, but I wonder if this service would have enough passengers to run it all year. When I have used Market Rasen on a Sunday the services have normally had more passengers on than their closest equivalent time in the week. ie the 1202 Lincoln - Cleethorpes is much busier than the 1235(ish) weekday service!
