08:34 Westbury to Swindon due 09:23

08:34 Westbury to Swindon due 09:23 will be starting late from Westbury.
This is due to train crew being delayed by service disruption.

It left on time and arrived in Swindon two minutes early.

As far as I can see, that key early service has been re-instated but the middle-of-day round trip remains cancelled.  Hate to loose any service but in ranking terms, if it was a choice, best call made.

It’s a strange one.  The return working of the first service was never shown as cancelled.  So whether the original plan was to run the 08:11 empty to Swindon and then pick up a conductor for the return trip I don’t know.  Anyway good news it’s running as planned.

Once again, a disproportionate number of cancellations between Swindon and Westbury today - 4 trains out of 14 - that's 71.4% of trains running versus a target of 98% minimum.   And that's after a fifth train was advertised as cancelled but then re-instated.



There ARE other cancellations around, but yet again the proportion on our line seems to be far higher than on any other line, and on a service which is think to start with has serious effect - you can't tell people just to wait for the next train like you could from London to Reading, St Erth to St Ives, or Salisbury to Southampton!

21:25 Swindon to Westbury due 22:05 will be cancelled.

If you are at Swindon or Chippenham travelling to Trowbridge or Westbury you should travel on the 21:22 Weston-super-Mare service from Swindon (21:34 from Chippenham) and change at Bath Spa for the 22:48 service towards Westbury which calls at Trowbridge (23:11) and arrives Westbury at 23:18.

So you need to leave Swindon earlier than you would have expected (though only by a few minutes) and you'll arrive into Trowbridge and Westbury nearly an hour and a quarter later than planned.  Hmm ...

In the other direction, best be in Westbury in good time too ...

I would suspect the train will be held at Swindon and leave in the path of the cancelled 21:25.

Facilities on the 15:14 Swindon to Westbury due 15:58.
Toilet facilities are not available.

On the grand scale of things, not the biggest of problems ... loos should be open at all five stations (at Melksham in the cafe) early in the day, and at Westbury, Chippenham and Swindon right through the time the "dry" train is shuttling.
