Rather stupidly I have allowed myself to be taken into going to Lincoln on Monday I can get a return to Euston for 13 and a return from kings cross for 50. Can anyone help or suggest eithet a better route or fare?

I will travel alone and have no railcards. I am also easy on times or prices. I would like to arrive 12-1
Thanks as always - I am on mobile so struggling to look up multi fare routes and tickets:(

You could take the route via Bedford & Nottingham (as suggested in the Leeds thread - except from Nottingham you go East to Lincoln) Just realised there is no service on the Bletchley-Bedford line on Monday 9th.

There is the option to split at Huntingdon, as suggested in the Peterborough thread (except I note you no longer have a Railcard, but if you do a lot of these sort of journeys it may be worth getting one?) or you could try a split at Tamworth as suggested in the Darlington thread (MKC - TAM is only £10.79 in the LM Half Price Sale).

Given how cheap it is to get to Tamworth on the LM Sale, I'd suggest going that way. Tamworth - Lincoln may be further split further to reduce the price of that leg.

Any idea what sort of time you are looking to return, and will it be the same day?

If you travel;

A day return splitting will be £36.89

Traveling out would be departing at 08:36 and arriving into Lincoln at 12:21

Return latest 2 journeys;
depart Lincoln 16:34, arrive MKC 19:57 OR depart Lincoln 18:35, arrive MKC 22:58





Fare breakdown;

MKC - TAM

£10.79

TAM - BUT
CDR
£5.70

BUT - DBY
CDR
£6.20


DBY - LCN

Haven't checked but a split at Retford might be decent, then get the Northern stopper from Retford Low Level to Lincoln.
