14:04 Frome to Swindon due 15:03
14:04 Frome to Swindon due 15:03 will be started from Westbury.
It will no longer call at Frome.
This is due to a broken down train earlier today.

Big relief - looks like they've fixed it or found a new(er [replacement]) train at Westbury

Spoke too soon

So it's lunch time now ... next train from Swindon to Westbury at about twenty to six this evening.  And someone suggested that the North Cotswolds line was bad!

You at least get road transport from Melksham..............I don't see too many taxis being laid on from Paddington to Great Malvern or Hereford?  Smiley

Fingers crossed that people were in time for the 17:31 and alerted ... if coming through from London to stay on the train - but excellent not to have cancelled the train completely.  Thank you.

Perfectly happy with two carriages at present  Grin   on a scale of 1 to 100, where 100 is a cancellation of the 17:36, this would struggle to be a 2.

20:02 Cheltenham Spa to Westbury due 21:50

20:02 Cheltenham Spa to Westbury due 21:50 will be reinstated.

It will be terminated at Gloucester.

It will no longer call at Stonehouse, Stroud, Kemble, Swindon, Chippenham, Melksham, Trowbridge and Westbury.

This is due to trespassers on the railway earlier today.

Just going back to last night's 20:02.

After terminating at Gloucester it did carry on to Westbury but without a guard or passengers.   At least it had a driver.



Seen here on Opentraintimes while said driver changed ends at Swindon

08:28 Westbury to Swindon reported 45 minutes late - "train late from depot".   Hope the return trip makes a Weymouth connection at Westbury as Sunday is the only day of the week that there are (in theory) connections both ways.

Terminated at Chippenham with the return starting back from there.  Suspect news was too late for anyone in Swindon to catch the earlier Penzance train to meet it.

Pretty unhappy regular commuters at Trowbridge for Swindon ... and they will be double happy when they find their return train cancelled though lack of crew.  Although it's a Sunday morning, there are people who live in West Wilts and live in Swindon, and rely on public transport to reach their jobs.   Modal change of the sort we (CRP) have set out to foster but which seems at times to be a battle.   Talk of overcrowded buses this weekend (and not rail replacement ones!) too.

08:47 Warminster to Bristol Temple Meads due 09:44 has been delayed at Warminster and is now 48 minutes late.
This is due to this train being late from the depot.

Oops ... although the latter isn't on Swindon to Westbury, it's the granting on a TransWilts request for an earlier train from Warminster on a Sunday - and these early Bank Holiday Sunday runs are important marketing for a service that's looking at a new market ...
