14:10 Frome to Swindon due 15:07

14:10 Frome to Swindon due 15:07 will be terminated at Westbury.
It will no longer call at Trowbridge, Melksham, Chippenham and Swindon.
This is due to a fault on this train.

15:19 Swindon to Westbury due 16:00

This is due to a fault on this train.

This has gone way, way beyond a joke.  Complete service only 1 day in the last 10. That was 25th June, and we may have missed logging; I am giving GWR the benefit of the doubt.

On 29th June they put a one car on the 17:36.  Now I love the 153s, but there's a reason they're no longer supposed to be on that service - and that's because they can't cope.    All other days are significant cancellations, and with Chippenham Station seemingly moving towards being an unstaffed halt, arranging alternative transport is likely to be as poor as it is at Trowbridge.

2O00 again ... but this time a much more minor problem at the far north of its run.

This is due to a points failure.

Serious for people from Cheltenham Spa and north thereof to Stonehouse and south thereof, mind you!

20:02 Cheltenham Spa to Westbury due 21:50
Facilities on the 20:02 Cheltenham Spa to Westbury due 21:50.
This is due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time.
Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 3.

Rather strange that the inbound train had two members of staff who left their kit on the 150, still on after departure time. Yes, it was Swindon platform 2.
