Hi All, Can anyone shed some light on the Bedford - Bletchley line after 18th May, Real Time Trains has a Bus Service, Fast JP has a train service, need the bit between Ridgemont and Bedford to complete the line. Thanks in advance for any responses.

Like the current timetable, it appears to be one unit out on the line with the rest covered by buses!

It's a bit of both - one train diagram plus buses. Monday to Friday it's timed to run the train at busiest times (i.e. the school trains etc), Saturday it's just half the normal service i.e. roughly 2 hourly. Buses fill in for any trains not running.


Despite this theoretically being quite easy to operate there have been days when the train has been rather unpunctual, so be warned.

Thank you both for the information, I thought Bletchleyite would have the local knowledge :)

If it runs! There has been some poor timekeeping
