I think https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/booking/t-rdjaop may work direct too.

Survey from Minehead Rail Link Group

Quote
This survey has been developed to obtain data about West Somerset residents' attitudes to the future of public transport provision in West Somerset.

Buses, trains, etc ... looking for residents rather than visitors, so I have put this in "New and improved services" and not in the heritage area.

I encourage all members and readers in Greater West Somerset to complete the survey - and I know we have some heavy representation around there.

Now reinstated on JourneyCheck, though replacement road transport has still been requested apparently!
It's on the way.    Probably shown as cancellation in error.  These things do happen

Agreed.  Always interesting to see how many people use a re-instated train ... even if was purely accidentally de-instated in the first place.   An information failure that can't be good for business.
4  Journey by Journey / North Downs Line / Re: Oxford to Gatwick without changing on: Today at 06:10:23 pm
I remember being on a SWT service to Portsmouth Harbour via Guildford in the 90's, I also remember via Basingstoke to Portsmouth and being on a service to Brighton via Basingstoke around 1999. Virgin Crosscountry ran to Brighton and Portsmouth via Guildford, and Brighton via Kensington Olympia from Reading I recall too. I always wondered whether there was much demand from the South Coast to the Midlands and the North avoiding London, perhaps a service from Brighton to Oxford stopping at busiest points between would create a link with the rest of the Crosscountry network again.

Have you seen the marvellous http://www.1s76.com web site?   I remember Lisa flying into Gatwick a couple of decades ago, destination Hatton.   A story we'll tell you about over a beer sometime.

Not showing as cancelled on RTT, whereas the Trans-Wilts ones are.

Some of the TransWilts ones are shown as cancelled ... others not; RTT tend to only show cancellations shortly before the train doesn't run ... 17:36 Swindon to Westbury still shown running RTT but not journey check.

14:10 Frome to Swindon due 15:07
14:10 Frome to Swindon due 15:07 will be reinstated.
It will be terminated at Westbury.
It will no longer call at Trowbridge, Melksham, Chippenham and Swindon.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

... and the only seven in GWR land. 

I notice the 17:36 isnít cancelled yet despite the inward working not running.  I wonder if someone has a plan for that. 

Gone now ...

17:36 Swindon to Westbury due 18:18
17:36 Swindon to Westbury due 18:18 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.
Additional Information
Customers at Swindon travelling to Trowbridge or Westbury should travel on the 18:00 Bristol Temple Meads service from Swindon and change at Bath Spa for the 18:36 service towards Portsmouth Harbour which calls at Trowbridge (18:54) and Westbury (19:01).

Rail Replacement transport has been arranged to run in place of this service between Chippenham and Westbury. Please see station signage for the Rail Replacement pick up location.

Alternative suggestion puts people 43 minutes late into Trowbridge and Westbury.  So misses Frome and Weymouth connections ... Weymouth arrival back from 20:10 to 23:13.   Passengers for Warminster and beyond ... stay on the train on which they arrive at Westbury.

I wondered that too.

Interesting to note the far better directions being put up on Journeyheck (though this is treating the symptoms and not providing a cure).    But the suggested alternative puts people an hour and nine minutes late into Swindon!

What is strange is that the inbound working is operating.  To gthe best of my knowledge GWR do not have Weymouth based crews so how are the crew from the inbound working getting home?

Taxi ?

Rail replacement bus ?

17:30 Weymouth to Bristol Temple Meads due 20:09
19/08/19 17:30 Weymouth to Bristol Temple Meads due 20:09 will be started from Westbury.
It will no longer call at Weymouth, Upwey, Dorchester West, Maiden Newton, Chetnole, Yetminster, Thornford, Yeovil Pen Mill, Castle Cary, Bruton and Frome.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.
Additional Information
Road transport has been requested.

Surely this train being a Ďpeakí service during the school holidays should be given priority to be crewed.

Hopefully a crew member will be sourced and the service reinstated.

That is an astonishing train to cancel.   But then it's not the only astonishing recent cancellation.
