Headed back to Melksham from Bristol - using the b-u-s from Bath!

Swindon Town at home too, cancelling the 1736 won't be appreciated.

A series of these this evening ...

Quote
17:52 Swindon to Westbury due 18:34
Facilities on the 17:52 Swindon to Westbury due 18:34.
Toilet facilities are not available.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Additional Information
We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.

When compared to other problems, we could perhaps suggest this is just a minor inconvenience

And another relatively minor issue.

17:41 Cheltenham Spa to Southampton Central due 20:44
17:41 Cheltenham Spa to Southampton Central due 20:44 has been previously delayed but is now 15 minutes late from Swindon.
This is due to checking reports of an obstruction on the line earlier today.
Last Updated:02/10/2018 19:27

Showing as 20 late at Stonehouse ... 15 late Swindon ... I expect (paths allowing) more like 10 late from Westbury. Will be interesting to take a look back on Real Time Trains

21 Late on the South Cotswold. 15 late on the TransWilts. 5 late at Warminster and 2 late (GBTT) into Southampton.  There you go - when is 20 minutes late considered to be "on time" for performance purposes!  Grin

07:30 London Paddington to Penzance due 13:13
07:30 London Paddington to Penzance due 13:13 will be diverted between Reading and Taunton.
It will no longer call at Swindon, Chippenham, Bath Spa and Bristol Temple Meads.
It has been previously delayed but is expected to be 7 minutes late from Taunton.
This is due to this train being late from the depot.
This train will now be formed of the usual number of coaches.
Looks like the decision was made to wait for a second 5 car unit to become available and divert via the Berks and Hants to make up time at the expense of serving stations via Bristol.  I doubt this was an easy decision but the alternative would have been a 5 car unit on the return working (1A93) which serves Plymouth and Exeter at busy times.

12:04 Penzance to London Paddington due 17:15 will no longer call at Tiverton Parkway and Taunton.
It has been delayed at Penzance and is now 7 minutes late.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 5 coaches instead of 10.
I wonder if the Tiverton Parkway and Taunton calls have been removed  since with just 5 cars on a Friday afternoon Penzance to London service,  anyone at Tiverton Parkway and Taunton may not even be able to physically board the train.
