Toilet facilities are not available.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

Never seen a semaphore signal for vacant and engaged before.

Some pax might get confused if they are on the throne and see a red signal for stop and a green one for go. What they would do at a double yellow is anyone's guess....... Roll Eyes Some may be wondering what the issue might be........

Perhaps the train is being held in a station by a faulty signal.  We all know toilets can't be used in stations.   Grin

There seems to be a bit of a run of these inconveniences:

17:30 Weymouth to Bristol Temple Meads due 20:09

All posted this morning, so presumably a set swap for this diagram as a result of a signalling problem this morning.

(Well someone had to be the first to post a sensible comment on the subject!)  Smiley

Though to the best of my knowledge, all GWR stock has toilet facilities?

Or probably a lack of set-swap and the same unit without working facilities will be used on those services. "Due to more than the usual number requiring repairs at the same time"
