I am travelling to Bristol Temple Meads on Thursday. Does anyone know if any HST's go from there anymore? If so where do they go? Thanks
You can also get short form (2+4) "Castle" sets on services between Cardiff and Taunton/Penzance stopping here.Yes. Cross country

Does anyone know where the XC HST’s are today? I’ve been on two sets that should have been HST’s that have been 4/5 car voyagers instead. That’s normally a minor inconvenience but today these are the only trains each hour between Bristol TM and Bristol Parkway via a diversionary route. Wedged, doesn’t cover it. I believe I may have been part of a record-breaking number of people in a voyager vestibule...
*Yes there is a GWR replacement bus, but it’s pointless West-bound due to the timings vs the train.
I remember yesterday Cross Country warned that one of their HSTs had failed at Plymouth, with that working being covered by splitting 2x220s- 1 220 covering the HST service and the other 220 working it's intended service.These are the XC HST workings today
