07:35 Westbury to Swindon due 08:17
07:35 Westbury to Swindon due 08:17 has been delayed previously and is now 18 minutes late from Melksham.
This is due to a late running freight train.

15:14 Swindon to Westbury due 15:55


15:14 Swindon to Westbury due 15:55 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.
Additional Information
Passengers should travel to Bath Spa and change for onwards services.

Passengers for/from Melksham should press the Help Point and await replacement transport.

Back to old habits - leave a four hour gap on the TransWilts rather than an hour gap elsewhere, and I would have hoped for a rail replacement bus to have been provided without having to call for it.  Sad.

Replacement road transport is being arranged to run in lieu of this train service between Chippenham and Westbury. Please check the stations Onward Travel Information poster and wait for the replacement road transport at the designated stop. The replacement road transport may run later than the advertised train times owing to the additional time taken by road between stations and the time required for loading and unloading at each stop.

Tickets routed via Melksham will also be accepted via Bath Spa.

Cancellations to services between Westbury and Swindon
Due to congestion between Westbury and Swindon fewer trains are able to run on the line towards Melksham.
Train services running through these stations may be cancelled. Disruption is expected until 19:30 02/12.

Customer Advice
A road vehicle has collided with the barriers of a level crossing between Reading and Newbury and the line is currently blocked.
As a consequence, GWR (Great Western Railway) long distance services to and from the West Country are being diverted through Swindon and Westbury and to ensure that they are provided with a route through Melksham, GWR local services are regrettably having to be cancelled.

Rail replacement road transport has been arranged between Chippenham and Trowbridge for passengers wishing to travel to and from Melksham.

Passengers at Swindon for Chippenham, Trowbridge and Westbury are advised to catch the next available service towards Bath Spa and change there for services towards Westbury.

Yes, I know, the line only survived the 1970s because of its use as a diversion route but, my, I wish we had the capacity or the ability to switch (when it's in use for that purpose) to switch over to timings to planned alternatives that continue to provide a local service too - calls on the modified long distance semi-fast services at the intermediate stations?   The local train at 2 or 3 cars is shorter than the 5 car (4.5 passenger accommodation) regional ones - but the carriages are just as busy or at times busier and the extra stops really would not be inconveniencing "the many" for "a few". Now more like "a little more delay for some to prevent really significant delay to others" - that's the TransWilts success that could be so much better nurtured with just a little customer-tuned adjustment on days like today.

I think DfT» (Department for Transport - about)/SWR» (South Western Railway - about) recently sent you a message that, if the railways were ever really run with the customer in mind, they certainly aren't now.
