Tuesday 12 December - day 2 of new timetable

I thought I'd give the 0642 another go, surely it was just teething problems yesterday?

The 0642 arrived in Bath on time, but at Wootten Bassett we stopped. Eventually, we were told that there had been a points failure. Time was ticking. We were then told that there was point failure (again) and we'd be there for another 10 mins. Within 3 mins we had actually started to move. Yippee - well, not really. The dealy had meant that I had missed my connections again!

As train did not stop at Didcot, I had to get off the train at Swindon and wait for one that did. Of course, if the 0642 did stop at Didcot, I would have made the connecting train to Oxford.

I got on the 0736 from Swindon (which actually arrived at 0743) and was lucky to get a seat. There were people standing in the aisles and vestibule areas - and we pay for this? What brought me closer to tears was the fact that this was the 0707 from Bath. oh well, I suppose all this jumping on and off trains with a large work bag and a 10kg folding bike will be keeping me fit!

Apparently, this service was delayed due to a failure in the rear power car and also there was no buffet car. (Apparently, they are removing the buffet cars from the HST services and replacing them with...more seats?...no, nothing. Can it be true?)

Anyway, arrived at Didcot at 0759 so missed my connecting service. At Didcot I stood next to a badly painted radiator - is this what they call 'refurbishment'?

Got into work 30 mins late. Final thought - perhaps I ought to send FGW my mobile phone bill as it's costing me a fortune having to phone work every day to let them know that I will be in, and that I am just delayed by the trains.

---

Journey home OK cos I'd been to a works Xmas bash and I did not notice the 20 min wait at Didcot. There also some amusing drunk people dressed in sombreros and ponchos.

---

Journey to work punctuality: 0%
Journey home punctuality: 100%

FGW alerts:
Full advertised service (apparently)
