07:33 Westbury to Swindon due 08:15
07:33 Westbury to Swindon due 08:15 has been delayed at Westbury and is now 37 minutes late.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

Not a good start to the 170th anniversary of the commencement of passenger services on the Thingley Junction to Westbury route.

But the 1736 ex Swindon is running which is the same unit.    This makes me think it's being nicked for something and leaving the Trans Wilts to suffer.    There is again no advice for passengers and when GWR do say use the Help Point at Melksham they are placing the responsibility onto the passenger to sort it out.

1. There is sometimes a unit switch at Westbury

2. A "fault" can be "not enough fuel" which allows one service to run but not the next.

3. I can't believe I'm making excuses when performance so far this month has been shambolic!

The 1645 Bristol Parkway to Warminster is cancelled (unit fault) and it's next working, 1818 Warminster to Cheltenham is starting at Westbury.    I read something into that.

Have tracked and this was the case.    Trans Wilts not a priority for GWR

Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 3.

Not a problem (at least until south of Warminster, where it becomes a school train)

This is due to a shortage of train crew.

Problem today - got completely all the way.  Schools back.

It has been delayed at Trowbridge and is now 25 minutes late.
This is due to a points failure.

That's 2 out of 3 peak trains gone this morning.

Someone's having trouble organising a pissup in a brewery!

This is due to animals on the railway.

I'm trying to work out where the animals might be if it's delayed at Westbury, when previous train heading in the opposite direction was delayed at the same place, and diverted.
