Times shown in this table are as accurate as we can make them without being phyically at the station for every departure.

Where a time or "on time" is shown, that's the time that the train was expected to leave shortly before it was due. Note that reports of delays are often optimistic, and delays can extend beyond the time forecast.

No report indicates either a failure of the information gathering system, or a train that is so late that it hadn't even started from Southampton / Westbury / Swindon by the time it was due in Melksham. Sometimes trains show up as "no report" if they're cancelled.

Cancelled means that the train did not call at Melksham. We are unable to gather details of any alternative bus or taxi service provided. On some occasions, trains are cancelled on part of their route only (for example, the 17:43 from Swindon may start at 18:24 from Westbury) and in such a situation the train will show up as cancelled if it fails to cover the Melksham part of its route, and as "on time" or with a reported time if it was another section of the journey that was withdrawn.

We are not gathering series data reliability information concerning substitute buses as the only way to do so would be to ensure that every bus was physically observed.
