15:28 Warminster to Great Malvern due 18:35

15:28 Warminster to Great Malvern due 18:35 will be started from Westbury.
It will no longer call at Warminster and Dilton Marsh.
This is due to a points failure.

Further Information
Owing to Network Rail protecting the infrastructure from failures caused by the warm weather this train is not able to start at Warminster. Customers for Westbury are requested to wait for the next available train service towards Bristol Parkway. Dilton Marsh will be served by Taxis from Westbury.
