Fifth anniversary of Melksham’s improved train service

The fifth anniversary of Melksham’s improved train service will be celebrated on Saturday 8th December. 

Campaigners for the increased services say, “Over the five years, passenger journey numbers have risen from around 3,000 to 75,000 per annum.  

“This year, we have seem the extension of the platform at Melksham from 1 to 3 carriages in length, and the introduction of longer trains.  18 train services call at the station each weekday, 16 on Saturday and 13 on Sunday, alternating destinations of Swindon via Chippenham and Westbury via Trowbridge.  A big “Thank you” to Great Western, Wiltshire Council, the TransWilts Community Rail Partnership (chair, Paul Johnson) for all their hard work.  

“The Melksham Rail User Group (chair Peter Blackburn; secretary John Hamley) meets on 23rd January, 7.30pm, Melksham Town Hall, all welcome. But please use the train long before then!”
