15:14 Swindon to Westbury due 15:58

15:14 Swindon to Westbury due 15:58 will be starting late from Swindon and is expected to be 7 minutes late.

This is due to the train departing late to maintain customer connections.

I was about to say "what a sensible thing to do today".  The 15:07 arrival at Swindon ofa train to Cardiff was delayed until 15:20, and it would make huge sense for the connection to leave at around 15:23 - usually a sensitive train because it has a tight connection onwards from Westbury, but not today because of the TSSA» (Transport Salaried Staffs' Association - about) Action.

Well - I was about to say, but I didn't.  Because JourneyCheck lieth.  The 15:14 to Westbury departed on time ...

06:35 Salisbury to Cheltenham Spa due 09:03

06:35 Salisbury to Cheltenham Spa due 09:03 has been delayed at Salisbury and is now 12 minutes late.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

Conflicting movements excepted, I would be amazed if most of that is not made up along the way!

None of which, I suspect will be a concern.   Traffic has grown massively over the years - I'm still amazed to see just how well services load away from the traditional peak.   I arrived back in Melksham at 20:21 on Thursday evening and there were perhaps 25 to 30 people on the train as we came in from Trowbridge. Over a dozen got off, and four or five joined.  The numbers don't seem massive, but compare that to the same train a decade ago where it would have been two or three passengers on the train, I would have been the only one getting off and I would have been amazed to see anyone joining the train.   And yet it could do so much better - the 55 minute wait for the connection at Westbury discourages traffic growth, as does the lack of a later service; it remains absurd that the service ceasss mid-evening and there's not just one more round trip later in the evening to get-you-home, which would be busier than that 20:21 arrival, and would also add outward journeys during the day to help grow traffic on other trains that already exist.

11:41 Swindon to Weymouth due 14:00

11:41 Swindon to Weymouth due 14:00 will be starting late from Swindon.
This is due to the train departing late to maintain customer connections.
Will be formed of 2 coaches instead of 4.

Appears a sensible call (running 7 minutes late) ... and 2 carriages should be enough (always 2 SWI» (Swindon - next trains) to WSB» (Westbury - next trains) - extras not being added there today) as I don't see much seaside traffic today!

EDIT to add ... just one minute down from Westbury and actually a minute early by Frome!  A mixture of various allowances in the schedule and sawing time on the station stop in Westbury without that pesky coupling time.
