06:11 Swindon to Southampton Central due 08:08 will be terminated at Warminster.
It will no longer call at Salisbury, Romsey and Southampton Central.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

Come December, this train will be the only survivor of the GWR (Great Western Railway) "extras" to Southampton, with the lunchtime train from Westbury and the evening peak train from Gloucester via Swindon both withdrawn south of Warminster.  GWR's services via Southampton will be limited to the Portsmouth Harbour service, and a daily train onward to Brighton (two back!)

Was briefly expected to be starting late due to congestion (the Brighton to Bristol Parkway was running late), which cleared in the nick of time!

Facilities on the 09:40 Swindon to Weymouth due 11:55.
This is due to more trains than usual needing repairs at the same time.
Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 3.

Hmmmm ... probably OK at this time of year, through this is the train I was on into Swindon last Sunday and it was getting pretty busy.  Certainly one where mask wearing will make a difference!

The 09:40 may not call at Castle Cary.  Overnight the footbridge to platforms 2 and 3 has been found to be unsafe and some early down services will not be calling there.

Customer Advice

Owing to the station footbridge being deemed unsafe, Platforms 2 and 3 at Castle Cary station are currently closed. Customers wishing to alight from trains at Castle Cary must make contact with on-board crew for alternative arrangements, and those wishing to board at Castle Cary must use the station help-point to summon alternative transport.

Is CLC (Castle Cary) that little used a station that alternatives are provided ad-hoc and no-one is [sent] there to help passengers?   I think we come back to "staffing levels below what is needed for proper customer service" discussions again!

Footbridge now re-opened.   So obviously someone was sent there to fix it.

On train signalling system? When did the TransWilts get ETCS (European Train Control System)?!

Looking elsewhere I've read it's a problem with a defective signalling cable that was found during overnight inspection. Points can't be moved and a couple of signals have gone dark.
