Train Services during the Pandemic

Great Western Railway have issued no printed timetables, but have very kindly let us have access to their Station Working Books for both Bruton and Castle Cary. These show the times of every train at either station and its time at each station all the way to its destination. As always, information is instantly available from National Rail Enquiries. (Click on the underlined words)

The Company insist that their services are only for essential travel, when cars, cycling or walking are not available. Please respect this, and observe social distancing. Masks will be required on trains (and buses) from 15 June.

South Western Railway have a reduced service through through Bruton and Castle Cary but have sent us no information; we have shown some times of their trains gleaned from  the GWR material we have received.
