GWR cancellations – details here

Great Western Railway is introducing a temporary reduced timetable. This is in response to higher than usual levels of staff being absent or self-isolating due to Covid.  
The temporary timetable reduction comes into effect from Saturday 8 January. Once in place GWR assure us they can provide the majority of its usual, planned trains. This will give customers confidence about services so they can plan ahead.  The reduced timetable will be updated on a weekly basis. It is only expected to be in operation for a short time – until the impact of the Omicron variant has lessened. 
We asked GWR for specific service cancellations effecting Somerset stations at Taunton, Bridgwater, Castle Cary and Frome.
These are the cancellations they have told us about so you can plan ahead:
