17:50 Gloucester to Southampton Central due 20:36 will be started from Westbury.
It will no longer call at Gloucester, Stonehouse, Stroud, Kemble, Swindon, Chippenham, Melksham and Trowbridge.
This is due to a fault on this train.

Delayed by 11 minutes in the end.  That in turn delayed the southbound service (17:50 ex Gloucester) by seven minutes while it waited for the single line.

No alternative offered.  Next train from Melksham to Swindon not until 12:33, to Westbury 13:40.  One of the most popular trains of the day these days.  No 5 car train on the CDF» (Cardiff - next trains)-PMH line that could drop a 2 car unit to help out?? Journey check not showing anything running short length on that line or to Weymouth either.

As an intending passenger travelling from a non staffed station (i.e. Melksham!), and no working information screen - how would I know the train is cancelled?
As a senior, I don't do Twitter, so wouldn't tweet.
I do faceache and of course this forum.
However, most of the travelling 'social' public wouldn't, so would be waiting a very long time for the next train.

That certainly wouldn't encourage me to use the train any further, and would pass on my frustrations to friends, etc.
