In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
Just checked out trains, not possible to get back in the day.
17:22 Lincoln to Retford,change Retford(18:01)to Kings Cross(arriving 19:30) tube to Paddington.20:30 departure for Exeter.

A tight connection At Retford,because it’s less than 10 mins Network Rail will not take responsibility for any delay catching that train.

Doesn't say much for the rail infrastructure when you have to travel all the way up to London just to get to the East Midlands and then they probably you rip you off for privilege of sending you half way round the country.

Getting back is the problem.You would need to get the 1655 off of Lincoln to get back via Birmingham New St(3 changes) it would not be really feasible,though the station is not too far from the ground.
The days of me sprinting to the station,like I did to get the 1710 off of Darlington(1.5 miles from ground) once are long gone..:D..

Going back via Kings X is the only viable option.Cost for the whole trip on the train would be around £120,I expect.
