Canít wait for all the people going West on the 802s this August when they are cut in half!

I heard 800/3 to Cheltenham start tomorrow? Is this true or?

Should be the case for the following trains (worked with two diagrams):

1G11, 07:36 PAD-CNM
1G29, 11:36 PAD-CNM
1G38, 13:36 PAD-CNM
1G60, 17:42 PAD-CNM

1L50, 10:36 CNM-PAD
1L67, 14:36 CNM-PAD
1L80, 16:20 CNM-PAD

Thank you. Bit tzoo early I understand but would it be likely they operate the route the next upcoming weekends?

I refuse to travel Sundays now because I used to most Sundays travel to Swindon from Gloucester, but they cancel every possible service. I drive now and until the drivers get back from their weekly Sunday Spa I can not be bothered to use a service that will be cancelled...

Most trains via Bristol are/were planned to no longer serve there.

Not bad.

For a 35 hour week, that's around £92 million annual salary.



ahhhhhh, but do you have to work Sundays?  Wink


No, they said that they will just cancel half the services for us drivers.

Start was moved forward to the 11th, however seems like now will be 18th due to a delayed delivery. Will have to wait and see now.

The proposed timetable was Dec 17, so surely it would still run on time?

Sounds good, and Iím sure many people will use Barry Island in the summer with those prices. They are packed as it is  Undecided

I hate ATW because of rolling stop, awfull customer service, bad communication and appalling station maintenance. Rolling stock will be well needed considering not many of their trains were built in the past 18 years.

Delay Repay for 15 minutes? What 50p? Honestly doubt many dates are expensive on their route and would not be paying a lot to refund a max 25 pound ticket.

If this is an improvement from travelling CrossCountry to Cardiff Iím happy.

Sent off my letter demanding apology for the 1 minute delay this morning. Despicable company.

Seen on a platform (so sort of valid to post) - but is it art?



Is that a image of GWR digging for cancellation excused? rolling stock?
or maybe Mark Hopwood hiding away from everyone.

I have to visit Oxford twice a week for 2 months now and the shuttle is busy at peak and in my opinion badly timed. Also feel sorry for the poor drivers just going back and forth for a few hours.
