Suspect you are probably correct. 

This service started at Plymouth and I did have a quick look as I got off at Swindon and there was still quite a bit left despite the train manager making announcements about the lack of catering staff and telling passengers there was water and light snacks available.

Good to hear people practicing restraint and only taking what they would consume so others can have something further into the train's journey.

Did the Boardmasters event pass without major incident this year?  If so, well done GWR for providing a suitable enhanced service.

Well, unrelated to the transport provision, there was another serious sexual assault at the event this year.

Almost made it  - just this:-

18:55 Newquay to London Paddington due 00:02 

18:55 Newquay to London Paddington due 00:02 will be terminated at Taunton.
It will no longer call at Reading and London Paddington.
This is due to a fault on this train.

Local services to Bristol Temple Meads and then what? Or wait for the sleeper!
