Delighted to say that GWR have confirmed they have taken on board customer feedback about the changes to these services, and after consultation with Network Rail, they have now been reverted.
This very welcome news came before we had submitted the final petition to GWR, though we have subsequently sent this to them for the record, to emphasise the strength of feeling these proposed changes generated among our local communities.
Thanks to everyone who supported this petition, contacted GWR directly, contacted their MP, and other local transport organisations. Hopefully we will be able to continue using these services long into the future!

See you on the 0848!
