Biggest Change Since 1976

When your regular train company emails you to tell you it’s making the biggest timetable change since 1976 in just a couple of months, it’s hard not to be fearful. I use GWR a lot – this is just the last 5 years of travel (and doesn’t take into account that as soon as I could use their app reliably, I switched to QR code tickets):

GWR promise:

Faster, more frequent services and more flexibility. All current train times will change and some new services may not stop at the stations they currently call at

That’s a lot of changes.

Especially in the context of the last timetable change, in May 2019 (sample headline: “British railways are reduced to chaos by a botched timetable change”).

Some would call it potentially transformational. Uhoh.
