Yup. Was originally headed for Melksham to collect Finn who was staying with grahame. He's now meeting me at Westbury for doggy handover. I will then head home to Templecombe via Salisbury (separate ticket). Had I completed journey by rail to Melksham then I would've been around 130 mins late.

As I would've been over two hours late at Melksham I applied for a full refund.

Happy to report the full refund was paid into my bank account today, 27th October 2021. Less than 10 working days since the claim was submitted. Well done GWR (Great Western Railway)!

Reported to be the turnback siding at Bedwyn. Shouldn't affect through services to/from the west.

Meanwhile Waterloo <> Reading was blocked at Barnes due to police action. Not sure why. But I had to get home from Clapham Junction via Kingston then the X26 bus rather than by Feltham.
