    Its not the only casualty .... whole swath of cancellations on Steam railtours page ;18 April > 28 Apr , with non nondescript lame excuse.
    [Cancelled due to gauging and pathing issues]
    [Cancelled due to WCRC operational restrictions]
    etc etc

    WCRC playing the reluctant host me thinks!!:(

    Seeing as WCRC are currently not allowed on the network; surely you cannot call them a "reluctant host"?

    The stewards on the Devon Explorer last Saturday said that the tour didn't cover this line cos of the FGW Depot Manager. However they added that access to Temple Meads from the south will be blocked sometime in the months ahead and Cross Country trains will be routed along the Marsh line. Does anyone know when this will be and have any more details?

    Think it's to do with FGW Electrification project?

    Does anyone know when GW electrification work will affect Temple Meads - I can't find anything on the Network Rail website?

    That's Bathampton Junction, I think - nothing to do with Bristol TM.

    Someone doesn't know what they're talking about I'm afraid...
