Wondering if they are overriding ARS more today...

The 1V17 MAN to BRI was late running at BPW and got switched straight from P2 to P1 to overtake a PAD to SWA service due to follow in P2

Never seen them do that before without them having to wait a while first

This is all well and good, But cannot see it on Opentraintimes as they are longwinded getting the map working, Its all gone to cock!, Signals not working in correct sequence.

...and becomes, if I'm reading it right, our first CFN turnback of the new regime...

Why are they turning Chris from Nailsea back?  As honest as midsummer day is long ... I can't imagine him being turned back from anything.

I Have just looked at that, but does not show signal aspects.

Think they all need a bit of time to catch up

Main thing is the service itself is running and already improving service from the start

I have a huge sympathy for the providers of free web sites and data (especially those who are not a part of the commercial rail industry) when the underlying data changes - especially in those circumstances where they have to wait and see what the systems throw at them when something goes live / data is released in a new format.    Been there - and I know there's another data handling rush for me on 11th December when the ORR station stats come out and we have to take a look at what format they've chosen this year, and what data is in which column to add to our databases!

Caught my 14.34 Temple Meads to Redland okay but I think the 14.03 may not have run.

Not sure if it's a signalling issue, but for the past hour or so there's been delays on the Up Main from just south of FIT on to BPW

Trains running up the bank and then getting stuck behind each other for around 10 minutes before they eventually proceed onto BPW

1M93 to MAN the latest casualty...  left BRI 1 minute late, just been stuck for 23 minutes   Sad

Up Main and both relief's seem to be ok tho

Possibly not what people had in mind when they asked for more pictures, but here's what today meant to me.

First is Clifton Down, getting back to its busy self;
Second: School run completed, stress-free, for the first time in weeks!
Finally: Pity they couldn't have done something about this while they were at it...

Passing through Stapleton Road station today, although the main line side of the island platform is still a bit of a mess, it looks like the platform wall has been rebuilt and edging slabs are being laid by the track. In short, it's at least looking like a regular platform there. Now, I know that there are no plans for a third platform at the station but what seems to be going on there looks to be at the very top end of what you could describe as passive future provision.

Just watched 1M69 go up relief from Bristol and down over points into Plat 2 at Filton.

Ah, the reason I doubted that it was running was that I jumped on an earlier Temple Meads to Parkway service and broke the journey at Lawrence Hill to do a quick shop at Lidl before taking the Beach Line home.  Checking the platform departures info point, the 14.03 was not showing.
