From the FGW (First Great Western) website :

Line problem in the Severn Tunnel Junction area.

Train services between Bristol Parkway and Newport South Wales are being disrupted due to an earlier broken down train in the Severn Tunnel Junction area. Engineers have worked as fast as possible to restore services to normal. Short notice alterations, cancellations and delays of up to 60 minutes may still occur.

20:22 Portsmouth Harbour to Cardiff Central due 23:55
This train will be terminated at Bristol Temple Meads.It will no longer call at: Filton Abbey Wood, Patchway, Severn Tunnel Jn, Newport South Wales and Cardiff Central.This is due to an earlier broken down train.

Road transport will operate from Bristol Temple Meads.

22:54 Bristol Temple Meads to Cardiff Central due 23:55
This train has been revised.It will additionally call at: Filton Abbey Wood, Patchway, Severn Tunnel Jn and Newport South Wales.This is due to an earlier broken down train.

Ah! Thanks, Lee!

Maybe my rather unusual 1753 service from BTM (Bristol Temple Meads (strictly, it should be BRI)) to Nailsea (http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=2045.msg15403#msg15403 ) wasn't just due to the sick passenger at Stapleton Road, then?

 Huh

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
