08:11 Warminster to Swindon due 09:06

08:11 Warminster to Swindon due 09:06 will be started from Westbury.

It will no longer call at Warminster and Dilton Marsh.

This is due to engineering works not being finished on time.

Two problems this afternoon.  A tree on the line and hit by a freight train near Freshford.  Meanwhile a commercial sized marquee on the track between Melksham and Thingley Junction on the single line.  Makes a change from a trampoline I suppose.

Classic example of two or three things going wrong at the same time.  In the server move, there was a gap of a few hours in the automated monitoring of the Melksham train call data, and I have been filling in the gap from Real Time Trains.  But a very odd report on the train due at 15:39 ... does anyone know what happened?



Showing 'right time' into Westbury ... and I suspect that's correct.  Times at Hawkeridge, Trowbridge and Bradford Junction look like the time the same train passed  / called there on its next journey back up to Swidnon - timings are in reverse and right for that hypothesis.  But 16:09 at Melksham???

1. At what time did the 15:14 from Swindon to Westbury call at Melksham, if at all?
2. What was showing on the departure board at the station when the train was due?
