A comment from a member the other day that things have been a bit quiet - good, perhaps, in that services have been pretty reliable.   This is going to really please anyone commuting from Westbury and Pewsey into London today ...

Quote
06:12 Frome to London Paddington due 08:01
06:12 Frome to London Paddington due 08:01 has been cancelled.
This is due to a points failure.

Quote
04:51 Plymouth to London Paddington due 08:35
04:51 Plymouth to London Paddington due 08:35 will be diverted between Taunton and Reading.
It will no longer call at Castle Cary, Westbury, Pewsey, Bedwyn, Hungerford and Newbury.
This is due to a points failure.

I wonder where the points failure is?

Mentioning traffic ... from a none-scientific first look this morning (biased sample of one trip), I've got the impression that shorter journeys are making a comeback far more quickly than longer ones, so perhaps there won't be too many people to collect from Pewsey ... 06:41 and 07:19 cancelled, but Real Time Trains is showing an 07:49 VST / 1Z69 so perhaps that's a mop up.   Train showing at 08:17 too ... ex Plymouth, and at Castle Cary as I write.

Quote
07:20 Frome to London Paddington due 09:09
An additional train service has been planned to operate as shown 07:20 Frome to London Paddington due 09:09.

East Somerset Junction.

ECS for the 06:12 comes from Stoke Gifford via Taunton and was held at Castle Cary.
