09:25 Frome to Cardiff Central due 11:36
09:25 Frome to Cardiff Central due 11:36 will be started from Bristol Temple Meads.
It will no longer call at Frome, Heywood Road Jn, Trowbridge, Bradford-On-Avon, Avoncliff, Freshford, Bath Spa, Oldfield Park and Keynsham.
This is due to a problem currently under investigation.
Additional Information
There will be a replacement bus for this service which will operate between Frome and Trowbridge where passengers will be able to board the 11:06 Trowbridge - Cardiff Central service.

Problem being lack of passenger facilities at Heywood Road Junction  Grin Grin

09:25   Frome   Not Stopping
09:49   Trowbridge   Not Stopping
09:55   Bradford-On-Avon   Not Stopping
09:58   Avoncliff   Not Stopping
10:00   Freshford   Not Stopping
10:12   Bath Spa   Not Stopping
10:15   Oldfield Park   Not Stopping
10:22   Keynsham   Not Stopping
10:40   Bristol Temple Meads   10:40
etc

So that's "catch the train 77 minutes later" at Trowbridge.  But good on JourneyCheck for giving that specific information. What is the advise for people who would have started at 09:49 at Trowbridge?

TransWilts is bustituted again today - finishing off works at Westbury ... I would have hoped that 12 13 days would have been enough!

Set booked to stable at Frome overnight. Unfortunately the set had to run empty back to Westbury sidings as Frome station was under an engineering possession. This would have been fine if the lines through Westbury weren't in another engineering possession all day Sunday! Roll Eyes
