Five East Midland Trains services on a weekday run between Lincoln Central and Doncaster. Today I was on such a service which was a third full of a single 153 on leaving Gainsborough Lea Road heading North. Has there always been so few services between these two places? What is the future for the services on this line? As far as I am aware if you don't take the direct train, you would have to change at either Barnetby, Retford, Newark or Sheffield and none of these seem convenient.
