23:42 Swindon to Cheltenham Spa


Engineering work is taking place overnight between Stonehouse and Gloucester, closing some lines.

It will not call Kemble, Stroud, Stonehouse.

It will terminate Gloucester. A replacement bus will operate at 23:42 from Swindon to Kemble, Stroud, Stonehouse Town Hall, Gloucester (set down only) and Cheltenham Spa.

Gloucester customers should use the train where possible. If you are travelling from Gloucester to Cheltenham Spa, you should travel by earlier services.
