17:59 St Erth to St Erth due 18:31

This train has been cancelled.This is due to a member of train crew being unavailable.

Yes, all of the St Ives services are St Erth to St Erth and have one headcode, this is because of the stopping pattern in the daytime, from St Erth every xx41 service calls at Carbis Bay, and the  xx11 services don't, however, you are allowed to go via St Ives to Carbis Bay as the xx11 services stop on the way back.  i.e. xx11 services go St Erth - Lelant Saltings, St Ives, Carbis Bay, Lelant Saltings, St Erth and the xx41 services go Lelant Saltings, Carbis Bay, St Ives, Lelant Saltings, St Erth. It's put in the system like this so people can buy tickets to St Ives and use the xx11 connections. Hope i've explained this in a readable way?Huh  Undecided

You have, thank you.  I'm guessing that the cancelling of a round trip counts as a single cancellation for franchise statistics then?

Probably! Mind you, under Wessex the St Ives was the most expensive train to cancel, these fines were higher on this line after the introduction of "Sprinters" in 1997 when the last of our old faithfull 117's were withdrawn, this was because it would have been too easy for the TOC (Train Operating Company) at the time to "nick" the St Ives unit to cover for a cancelled mainline train.
