Excellent ... a step in the right direction.  And there was me being a miserable git and waiting for the cancellation of the 13:30-ish Swindon to Weymouth.

Correct - thread is "cancellation and amendments log" - with backup data such as that just above being one of the sources used to help the Melksham Rail User Group report back to TransWilts on the performance from a Melksham perspective.   See Reply No. 293 for the (1st August) report

The example above is a relatively minor one - "only" 22 minutes - though anyone making connections to the Waterloo or Taunton train would have been having kittens!   Looking on Real Time Trains, the Waterloo was stuck behind anyway, and the Taunton connection made by less than 4 minutes.

This is due to a shortage of train crew.

Additional Information
Customers for Trowbridge and Westbury are advised to travel to Bath Spa and Change. Customers travelling to / from Melksham, road replacement transport will operate from Chippenham.

Can't use the "Sunday is voluntary" reason as it's a Tuesday!   But good to see road replacement transport is in place - a step in the right direction.  Now - please - tell people at Melksham via the help point screen that the bus or taxis will be along.   I'm not at the station - finger crossed that the common sense of putting something appropriate and informative on the display will happen.

This is due to a fault on this train.

A train of multiple parts - in other words people are getting on and off along the way - so I wouldn't expect this to be a major issue even if it's three hours end to end.

If it sticks to Diagram it will be carrying some desperate passengers on the 1730 from Weymouth

It was swapped for a 166 at Bristol TM on its way back from Southampton and sent to the naughty step at SPM.

4 O'Clock in the morning and journey checks already reporting

Thank you for the good notice.  But pretty poor show that - with how many drivers - GWR can't find a single driver for a contracted service at 14 hours notice.

When expanded, both reports of the form

Further Information

If you hold a valid single, return, or weekly ticket, you will be able to claim compensation for delays of 15 minutes or more. Please keep your ticket and visit GWR.com/DelayRepay

Plenty of time to arrange alternative transport, especially as the 2006 is the last Melksham service of the day

I like to travel.  It lets me feel I'm getting somewhere.

It will no longer call at Melksham.

15:28 Swindon to Westbury due 16:08 is being delayed at Swindon and is now expected to be 6 minutes late.
This is due to lightning damaging the signalling system.
