Bit of a mess up on the Weymouth route today. The Network Rail Weekly Operating Notice states that Yeovil Pen Mill is within an engineering possession and that Rail Replacement Road Transport is required from Castle Cary for stations to Weymouth. Unfortunately, the trains are shown as running through to Yeovil Pen Mill with road transport forwards from there. Confirmed that Weymouth route trains will be terminating at and starting from Castle Cary for the remainder of today.

Thank you for that alert, RA ... looks like the line is back open from first service this morning, with just Chetnole and Thornford stations late re-opening, and that being described as a fault on the 05:33 train from Weymouth.
