For Devon and Cornwall ... St. Ives, Gunnislake, Barnstaple, and Exeter to Plymouth locals running to timetable.  Some cancellations on the other six lines.

This is due to a shortage of train crew.

Very much a pattern "crew shortage".  Which should at least give a clue as to what needs fixing - so much harder when there's a rash of cancellations with many different causes.

Are there any train crew vacancies in Cornwall? Judging by the last couple of days they look at bit short of crew in this part of the world
