    Trivia: Towns which do not deserve the service they get

    Westbury Westbury has only got a population of 15,000 and gets served by 3 or more trains every hour. However, further down the line at Frome, the population is 26,000 but it only gets served by about 10 trains a day (I think! Please tell me if this is incorrect!)
