11:20 Weymouth to Swindon due 13:34
11:20 Weymouth to Swindon due 13:34 has been delayed at Weymouth and is now 14 minutes late.
This is due to a safety inspection of the track earlier today.

This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 3.

My heart missed a beat when a great fat sponge just came up on our map at the top of these pages between Westbury and Swindon a few minutes ago ... however, the day's shuttle train at 2 cars rather than 3 is fine for this year.

Traffic is growing again and a 153 (1 car) turning up (as was regular this time last year) when it had just, supposedly, been replaced would be an issue on 4 of the services. Talking of which ... the first train was replaced by a bus in Sunday - engineering pre-planned - and I understand the bus was full and standing. Shows the importance of the Sunday morning train.

Needs two carriages on this diagram in 2019 - so this is much more of a technical / reporting issue than a problem on the line.

Lots of disruption this evening.  PHBT at Theale so B&H shut since about 1740 and West Country services diverted via Melksham.  Oh for that double track or Dynamic Loop......

As I write four down services qued up at Chippenham.

Having said which,  the first train last Sunday was replaced by a bus (planed ahead) and was reported FULL AND STANDING.   With the Melksham Rail User Group ( http://www.mrug.org.uk ) increasing its marketing this year, and with TransWilts upping its paid CRO position by 50% this year too, and with much more reliable trains ... we probably will have to start worrying about 2 car v 3 car in the foreseeable future.

No problem south of Swindon .. as a peak service from Cheltenham Spa / Gloucester up the Stroud Valley, it's likely to be bursting for the first half hour to hour of it's journey.

Even the 17:36 will cope for a few months ... just a year ago it was still a 153 from time to time and whilst traffic has grown we won't burst a 2 car turbo until the autumn  Grin

Today the 17:36 was a class 158.

There was a 3 car 158 on Tuesday on the 10:02 from Melksham ... and another 3 car 158 in the bay when we got to Swindon on the Cheltenham Spa layovers.   To run 5 cars on Cardiff / Portsmouth, you can't mix 15x and 16x - so I suspect that as 2 car 165s have become available to bolster those services, the 3 car 166s have had to join them and the 158s displaced onto TransWilts, Stroud Valley, etc
