A post on RailUK Forums mentions a new footbridge at the country end of Castle Cary station, seen there yesterday. It is not on Street View or Apple Maps. Dies anyone know anything about it.

Fine now

Longer term it might make sense to do Southampton to Reading via Salisbury for the freight traffic at 25kv, then to Salisbury and infill Romsey to Bathampton also at 25kv.

Longer term might be Salisbury to Exeter at 25kv, determined by use as diversion route. If so, it would seem sensible to add Yeovil Jn to Castle Cary for the same reason.

However see attached image from this month?s Railway Magazine!

14  Journey by Journey / London to Kennet Valley / Re: Cancellation - 2 successive services Westbury & Pewsey to London on: September 09, 2020, 08:16:01 am
Today the ecs for the Frome-Paddington was 85 late off The depot and ran from Temple Meads to Pewsey, via the Hawkridge curve. It left Pewsey just 25 late.
Curiosity then got me wondering why the ecs is routed via Taunton.

There seems to be some progress in reopening this line. It has become part of the Auckland Project. This from the Northern Echo
