Train Services this Summer from Charlbury

I submitted an article for the Charlbury Chronicle on its copy date, 1st May. It now appears that things have moved on and parts of it need clarification.

18th July to 1st September:
Work ends at 5am on 1st September, so trains should run normally on that day.
During the period 3rd to 23rd August, buses will replace trains only between Moreton-in-Marsh and Evesham (not Worcester as stated).

Mondays to Thursdays from September to December:
The times in FGW's current pocket timetable are shown as "provisional". It appears from the timetable poster at the station (produced somewhat later) that a normal train service will operate during this period. It is now understood that overnight work will start in January 2010.

Monday to Friday 26th to 30th October:
It transpires that the engineering work which will affect train services during this period is between Oxford and Wolvercot Junction. This will prevent trains running between Oxford and at least Hanborough. No details are yet available of where buses will replace trains during this period.

Further details will be posted here when known. If in doubt, please check with National Rail Enquiries 08457 484950 or visit
