Weekend of 19th and 20th January 2019
For regular services see [here]
Revised engineering works - later weekends in January - please check a few days ahead; data provided so far is contradictory. We anticipate that trains WILL be calling at Melksham, but they may have slightly revised timetables and may only run as far as Chippenham, with other trains or buses on to Swindon. This is due to late scheduled engineering works between Swindon and Didcot.
Overnight engineering - 21 to 24 Jan, 9 to 11 Feb, 4 to 7 March - http://www.passenger.chat/20919
