The new Lincoln LNER Azuma service is a 👍

Got the say that the new Lincoln LNER Azuma service is a 👍 from us at theBythams. Used it for the very first time on Tuesday.

It’s so much faster than having to change at Sleaford, when using East Midlands Railway. Which use to take around 1 hour 20 mins, sometimes even longer.

The new service via Newark North Gate, only takes around 43 minutes.

So can’t wait, till the Saturday and Sunday service, starts in December, just in time for the Lincoln Christmas Market.

If you have used the new service, please do comment and let us know, what you think!!
