- (Probably) one bus every 2 hours to Warminster. Timetable and operator unknown as yet.
- Two extra trains per day, GWR, all stations to Bath (from Brighton, onwards via Bristol)

"Control" - what you had at the start of December 2021:
- One train per hour, GWR, major stations to Bath (and onwards to Bristol and Cardiff)
- Two extra trains per day, GWR, all stations to Bath (and onwards via Bristol)
- One bus every 2 hours, First West of England to Bath
- Three or four trains a day, SWR» (South Western Railway - about), London to Bristol route
- Several extra SWR trains, SWR, to Westbury then via Frome (**)
- Three local trains per day, GWR, from Southampton via Westbury (*)
- Additional early morning train, GWR, Salisbury to Swindon (**)

(**) - these trains are said to be just temporarily suspended at present
