Well, the weekends nearly over and I've had 25hours available for leisure purposes (awake and not at work). In the last two days, I've made five train journeys of FGW services and suffered 90 minutes of delay in total. That's 6% of my leisure time lost.

To compound matters, standing was necessary on three of the journeys and two (both lasting >30mins each) were made on Pacers. I also never saw a trolley on any of the services and my tickets were either never checked or improperly checked.

Thank you so much FGW for the smashing weekends train travel; certainly transforming travel here in the West Country.

1532 EXD-PAD will terminate WSB, but what's the point?
That is disgusting. 4 London trains down the drain?!

Has there been an incident i don't know about?

Ah that explains it. Surely a bit of diversion could have been implemented. At least the passengers GET to London instead of being stranded in Paignton/Plymouth/Westbury. The 17.30 PNZ-PADD (Via BTM) I can see being full and standing from Plymouth.
