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...)

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

Couple of short forms today that shouldn’t be too much of an issue with the forecast for today not being the best.

Seems to be happening a fair bit this week, guessing GWR are down on a few Turbos!

Might be be best avoided IF Journeycheck is correct:

This is due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time.
Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 3.

Hopefully another unit can be found or replacement coach will be provided as back up.
