The timetable below is the current timetable which is valid from 9th December 2018 to 18 May 2019
Between 18 February and 8 March, there will be minor variations in the timetable because GWR trains to and from Paddington will be using the line.
The 07:40 from Salisbury to Exeter will run 2 – 3 minutes EARLIER between Yeovil Junction and Honiton, and the evening commuter trains are changed. Don’t get caught out.
The changes are still subject to further change but you can see the highlights here – Timetable changes 18 February to 8 March (15 downloads)
There are changes planned for the new timetable from 19 May.
• 3 off peak and return services are extended from Salisbury to Yeovil Junction/Pen Mill.
• Alternating calls on weekday evening Exeter bound trains at Feniton and Whimple are reversed to remove a current performance issue involving the evening peak Exeter – Honiton service and Additional calls at Pinhoe.
• Saturdays AM Waterloo – Weymouth via Yeovil service, Additional Yeovil Junction – Weymouth shuttles.
• Sundays Extension of further Waterloo – Salisbury services to Yeovil Junction, New hourly Salisbury – Reading service during middle part of day calling at Andover with some extended to / from Gillingham.
Here is a presentation of the changes given by Andrew Ardley of South Western Railway recently – under West of England. Note they are still subject to change.
