The Summer 2020 National Rail Timetables are available for download from .    They do admit that not all table are an accurate reflection of what has gone live.

May 2020 NRT – update

We have published the first version of the May 2020 NRT in line with the new timetable going live on Sunday 17 May 2020.

Due to high levels of timetable change taking place during the ongoing COVID-19 situation, be aware that not all tables are an accurate reflection of the base timetable that will go live. We are working through changes and will update tables in line with the transition to the full WTT over the coming months.

I have uploaded a mirror and linked it in to our "station comparator" pages ... via so there should be no requirement to know your table number - just navigate to a station along the line of interest and select the link alongside "National Rail Timetable 2020 Summer"

Examples ...

From - table 123 including Melksham
From - table 116 including Radley
From - table 143 including Falmouth Docks
From - tables 135 and 142 including Newquay

Here's an improvement we had been looking forward to that provides proof that you can only be sure of a change when it actually turns up ... three months back we had expected ...

The "Weymouth Wizard, 2020" including a Swindon portion. to a celebration and marketing frenzy!

From Swindon at 08:33, Chippenham at 08:50 and Melksham at 09:00,  arriving 10:57 into Weymouth
Return - 18:15 from Weymouth arriving Melksham at 20:22, Chippenham at 20:32 and Swindon at 20:50

The 20:04 Westbury to Swindon useful as a stand alone too - plugging one of the two most serious service holes on the TransWilts - the absence of a northbound service on Saturday evenings after half past six.  For December 2020 (let's be realistic) we should have the Saturday morning southbound timing off Swindon to be all year (not sure why it's a few minutes later as from September) and the northbound train to run too for local traffic. There's been an empty train running up to Swindon for form the 21:36 back which is rather silly!
