Beautiful spring day ... school holidays ... great for a trip to the seaside

17:30 Weymouth to Westbury due 19:07
Facilities on the 17:30 Weymouth to Westbury due 19:07.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 3.

Oops - probably not one to short-form!

Dont worry, youve caught it in plenty of time - Once they read that, it'll be 5 coaches  Grin (rail, not road hopefully...)

Currently muddling along the Guingamp-Carhaix line

That diagram has been short formed all day.  Although with rail replacement buses north of Westbury it probably won't be as busy as on a normal weekend.

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

And more difficult to get any more units to Westbury
