Well, we are too far away from Lea Road to catch a train, and there are actually only three more departures from Gainsborough at this point which seem to just go to the depot. So, to avoid simply taking one of those, where we'd be stuck for the rest of the night, we return in the morning for the 0555 Stagecoach East Midlands service 98 to Doncaster (Interchange), arriving there at 0645 on Thursday morning.
