So what does a Cornwall Buildings at Risk look like?

Check the GWR website before you travel and here is the May-Sept 2021 train timetable. As at 23 July 2021

Due to a large number of GWR staff being affected by Track and Trace, GWR is now running a reduced timetable until further notice, which means two St Germans trains, the 11.33 upbound and the 12.31 downbound, will no longer run. Also please be aware that the previously timetabled down train at 11.46 from Plymouth now leaves at 11.42 (Saltash at 11.51) and waits at St Germans for 5 minutes, so it continues to leave at 12.02.
