Pretty sure I've checked thoroughly and it was limited to two stations, one of which was Chippenham. However the branch off from Chippenham is termed Wessex Main Line, so technically that only leaves one other...There must be five answers to that! What is the definition of "branch line"?
I'm going to choose Cheapenham , but it's not the only possible example...
No. The 'core' Great Western Main Line is London to Bristol Temple Meads.Surely not one of the pokey little stations in Plymouth? Is Keyham the last one before the Gunnislake line runs of?
(By the way, the Melksham route - although part of the WML - should in my opinion have its own identity. Something like "The Melksham Line" :roll
There's about 3 miles between the junction for the Westbury line and Bath Spa! You come out of West Ealing and the junction for Greenford is immediately next to the station.On that definition Bath Spa is also possible - though calling the Westbury line a branch might irk some
And the prize for longest clue goes to Ivo...Although serving a well-populated area, this station takes its name from one of the nearby smaller places and not the larger area, which shares part of its name with one of the few High/Low Level station pairs in Britain.
That is certainly a long clue!There's about 3 miles between the junction for the Westbury line and Bath Spa! You come out of West Ealing and the junction for Greenford is immediately next to the station.

southern:we will not be able to extend the off peak west london line service as far as ******** from the timetable change on 23 may 2010........we will be working with network rail to confirm completion of the work and secure a date on which we will be able to extend the service.
Its not just because I have no desire whatsoever to see MK. Oxted trains do not stop at South Croydon.But this would be no good to me.
