??? Invoking emacsclient with the +LINE argument causes Emacs to
scroll to the specified line.  So I'm not sure why you need to do
anything beyond invoking emacsclient.  There must be some details you
didn't tell.

Just

  emacsclient +LINE1 FILE1 +LINE2 FILE2 ...

should do what you want.  It does for me.
