"Advertorial" ... as this is summat I put together ... newly updated to be more user friendly

As you roll towards Bristol Temple Meads on the local train from Weston-super-Mare or Avonmouth, headed for Bristol Parkway, which train to you change onto?  Is the GWR 'stopper' for Great Malvern your train, or the Cross Country service for Glasgow?  How about GWR's 'superfast' for Paddington?

The Melksham Rail User Group's "onward train" page at http://www.mrug.org.uk/bri.html reads industry data feeds and gives you a dynamic list of destinations so you can find the next departures for Bristol Parkway (or Taunton or Swindon or Westbury ...) - platform numbers, whether the train is on time, when it's expected to get to your destination ... ideal if you're unsure what calls where and need data better tuned than the departure boards that only list final destinations as you get off the train in Bristol.

As well as Bristol Temple Meads, "onward train" pages are available for Bath Spa, Birmingham New Street, Bristol Parkway, Cardiff Central, Cheltenham Spa, Chippenham, Didcot Parkway, Exeter St Davids, Frome, Gloucester, London (Paddington), Melksham, Oxford, Reading, Swindon, Taunton, Trowbridge, Newbury, Newton Abbot, Plymouth, Newport (South Wales), Worcester Shrub Hill, Swansea, Hereford, Warminster, and Westbury.
