No apologies needed, the train ran to time through that area anyway, did leave Westbury a few minutes late though

From JourneyCheck 05/06/2018

11:27 London Paddington to Penzance due 17:33

Additional 11:27 London Paddington to Penzance due 17:33 will be diverted between Reading and Taunton.
This is due to a problem currently under investigation.

Last Updated:05/06/2018 04:15


OK if this is an additional service and was planned to operate via Westbury but why put up the reason given over 7 hours before the service is due to commence operating rather than to admit to yet another f***-up.

At least clear instructions were given on what to do or what’s been provided.

Totally agreed.

Having cut the timetabled service from 18 trains to 7 for engineering works, a further cut on the day to 6 - with the extra train being removed being the peak service - is a little frustrating!

Alterations to services at Swindon
Due to a fault with the signalling system at Swindon fewer trains are able to run on some lines.
Train services running through this station may be delayed by up to 20 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 09:30 08/06.
Additional Information
Owing to signalling problems in the Swindon area the number of trains passing through the station has had to be reduced either by cancellation of diversion via alternative routes. This will affect services between London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads, London Paddington and South Wales & Swindon and Westbury via Melksham.

Those services still operating through the Swindon area will be subject to delay.

18:32 Westbury to Swindon due 19:21 is being delayed at Westbury and is now expected to be 21 minutes late.
This is due to train crew being delayed.

Thank you for letting us know ... not a huge problem if the WebTIS is working.

For the record, it was diverted via Bathampton (fail to call at Melksham) as it missed its path on the single line.

Most of the day like this:

17:36 Swindon to Westbury due 18:17
Facilities on the 17:36 Swindon to Westbury due 18:17.
This is due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time.
Will be formed of 1 coach instead of 2.
Last Updated:19/06/2018 06:42

NOT appropriate for the 15:18 or the 17:36 off Swindon

With more of the 153s going off lease soon the concern is one coach may turn into no coaches.
