I just feel sad for passengers at Brighton who've chosen that train as the only direct one of the day to Gloucester, Cheltenham and Worcester to learn it's not running from there.

Mind you ... if the 08:59 is not running, passengers for Cheltenham Spa can take the 09:05 and change at Barnham, Fareham and Bristol Temple Meads and get to Cheltenham earlier, and can connect at Cheltenham Spa into the train that should have started from Brighton and didn't.

17:02 Brighton to Bristol Temple Meads due 20:26 will be started from Worthing.
It will no longer call at Brighton, Hove and Shoreham-By-Sea.
This is due to a fault with barriers at a level crossing.

10:48 Great Malvern to Brighton due 16:14 will be terminated at Worthing.
It will no longer call at Shoreham-By-Sea, Hove and Brighton.
It has been delayed at Bristol Temple Meads and is now 23 minutes late.
This is due to trespassers on the railway earlier today.

Mischeviously, one wonders about a service that's touted as a through service but you end up having to change on the way - is it really a through service?  Bearing in mind that Great Malvern to Brighton is only valid via that route on the "through train" rule, does that mean it wouldn't have been a valid journey today  Cheesy Grin

Happens on the buses too ... Axminster to Beer about 10 days ago turned out to be advertised as a through route but with a change in Seaton!

Especially "classic".  That's the 18:42 from Southampton calling at Romsey and Salisbury at 19:13.

There is also an 18:40 from Southampton which calls at Romsey and arrives Salisbury at 19:24 ... if you wonder why that's slower, it's because it sits outside Southampton - at Millbrook - for 6 or 7 minutes to let the 18:42 go through and clear the section, and it has extra stops.  I know that franchising encourages competition so it's really good having 2 trains 2 minutes apart ....

From Wednesday ... the Brighton pulls in to Westbury to pick up a "few" people:



Shows the crowds coming off the train from the West Country and the importance of the interchange / volume of the flow. I have no idea how many of these people were going beyond Fareham ...
