11:04 Swindon to Westbury due 11:48 is now running as scheduled.

This was going to divert via Bath Spa (not just Bathampton Junction) due to overcrowding because of an event.

10:58 Weymouth to Swindon due 13:24

10:58 Weymouth to Swindon due 13:24 will be started from Westbury.
It will no longer call at Weymouth, Upwey, Dorchester West, Maiden Newton, Chetnole, Yetminster, Thornford, Yeovil Pen Mill, Castle Cary, Bruton and Frome.
This is due to engineering works not being finished on time.

05:11 Gloucester to Southampton Central due 08:07 will be diverted between Chippenham and Trowbridge.
It will no longer call at Melksham.
It is being delayed between Chippenham and Trowbridge and is now expected to be 7 minutes late.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system earlier today.

A report from yesterday afternoon, when the only trains serving Chippenham were the Westbury to Swindon shuttle (and you will note that the last two of those got cancelled too)

Quote
Graham Ellis you should have seen it yesterday. You would have been amazed.

As you know all high speed services cancel from Swindon towards Chippenham Bath and Bristol. People were using the direct transwilts service to get to Bath and Bristol by changing at trowbridge.

The 1544 service from Swindon was like a cattle truck. Full and standing three carriage to trowbridge.

Shame the last two directs in the evening were cancel both ways

And no sign of an ECS (Empty Coaching Stock) running in it’s place from Westbury to Swindon, so it looks likely that the 13:15 Swindon to Westbury will be a cancellation too.
