They don't have enough trains to run the full service at the weekend. I guess they are repeating the same pattern each weekend, so look up this weekend and the missing trains should be cancelled off.

Re: All the terminals

Re: Bus route teaser

I share your dislike of 7XP. My favourite use of letters was by Your Bus of Alcester, who ran competitive journeys against WMT in the early 90s.
