Thanks

From Grimsby Town to Habrough, to Barnetby, to Gainsborough Central (Saturdays only), to Retford (Saturdays only), to Worksop, to Sheffield, to Meadowhall, to Swinton (South Yorks) (avoiding Rotherham Central), to Doncaster.

...and a few more!

Nope, no more. Just those two.

BTW Clive Feathers Online Routeing Engine doesn't define permitted routes, so be careful. I don't suggest using it for that purpose. The only purpose it is reliable for is determining the shortest route - which is always valid.
