At least we're told early so that people can re-plan their whole work day.
And it looks like it's been re-instated

How many times do GWR (Great Western Railway) have to keep changing the information.
The first cancellation would cause me to replan.

Indeed ... from an experienced train user viewpoint, more information early on would be useful such as "there's a chance this 17:36 may not run today due to a faulty train - please check back later", but I suspect that would be too much trouble to do, and might confuse less experienced passengers.

Quote
It's unlikely I would keep returning in the hope it's been reinstated (only for it to be invariable cancelled again later)

Agreed, once it is "hard cancelled".   But I might check back on a train marked "at risk".  On the other hand if there was an "at risk" category, it might encourage the people planning and running the services to make lots of trains like that, and to not put quite to much effort into actually running a service once a yellow flag had been raised.

How does that work if you're booked on the first train of the day/a very early train?

Would you be expected to wake up throughout the night to check if the advice is to "check back later" ?

The 12:17 from Westbury appears to have run, more or less on time , under its 2M17 headcode. I have no knowledge of what information was available locally at stations, but the Tiger feed showed the service as cancelled at Trowbridge, Melksham, Chippenham and Swindon, even as the train was in progress.

It certainly ran the journey back to Westbury - I gave Lee a lift to Trowbridge to catch the 13:54 to Portsmouth and it called on time (13:49) dropping 8 passengers off.  But we hadn't wanted to risk it with from Melksham bearing in mind an onward international connections and the up train flagged as cancelled.   Interesting, the Portsmouth train also dropped off 8 passengers ... TransWilts and "Main Line" trains just as busy as each other.
