Yes, I beleive it's second on the official "first train to cancel" list after the 07:10  Wink

The Newquay services ends next week so the 7.10 will be back on the cancellation list once again when it 'resumes' service!

As I have said so many times, 0710 was the spare for 2 services, 1 of which is this!

regards the 05.40 - Its not good is it  Huh Does anyone know if many passengers use the 05.40?

As for the 07.10, anyone who knows about this ghost train probably by now doesnt bother turning up for it. What affect this must have on the Swansea-London service that has to pick up extra passengers at Parkway and make an additional stop at Didcot can't be good. In my opinion FGW (First Great Western) should not be allowed to publish a service in their timetables that they virtually have no intention of running. Shame things like this arent covered by the trade descriptions act.
