COTSWOLD LINE PROMOTION GROUP

In association with and with thanks to Great Western Railway. CLPG, presents an Excursion Train to Minehead

On Saturday September 23rd 2017

The Cotswold Line  Promotion Group is organising a special excursion train with Great Western  Railway.

Our High Speed Train will start at Oxford and travel via the Cotswold Line to Worcester Shrub Hill before reversing to travel via Bristol, Taunton, Bishops Lydeard, Crowcombe, Williton, Watchet, Blue Anchor and Dunster en route to Minehead.

The train can be boarded at all stations between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill.

Approximate times - at the time of going to press, the final times have not been determined and are subject to change:

 

Outward: Oxford dep. 07.46, Worcester S.H. dep. 09.20, Minehead arr. 13.00

 

Return: Minehead dep. 17.20, Oxford arr. 20.24, Worcester S.H. arr. 21.57 Fares and how to book – Please complete and return the booking form on which the fares are shown. As the prices are set as low as possible, no reductions are available for holders of Railcards. Please book early as accommodation will be limited to around 330 Standard Class and 112 First Class seats. The booking conditions are set out overleaf.

Bookings will open on 23rd. April, St. Georges Day.

CLPG MEMBERS DISCOUNT. Available to members as at March 31st 2017 Individual, Senior and Corporate members of the CLPG qualify for up to TWO discount tickets. Family members qualify for a maximum of FOUR adult discount tickets. Any additional passengers who are accompanying members must pay the appropriate full fare

GENERAL INFORMATION

SEATING. All seats will be reserved. FIRST CLASS seats in the eight coach High Speed Train are now arranged in a mixture of 4 seats at a table and, opposite them, single seats in airline format. Bookings for 2 or 4 seats will be offered places at tables until they are all sold. A 3rd or 5th passenger will be offered a single seat  opposite. STANDARD CLASS seating is almost entirely airline style with a few tables. As the seat numbers can vary from train to train, requests for tables cannot be accepted. There is limited accommodation for disabled passengers in Standard Class Coach C. Please confirm disabled availability BEFORE booking by telephoning, or sending an email, to one of the contacts below.

CHILDREN. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Reduced rates (5 to 15 years inclusive) apply to Standard Class only. Children under 5 travel free in Standard Class but CLPG would like to know the numbers involved so that seating can be allocated appropriately

ANIMALS AND CYCLES. In view of the length of the journey, we regret that animals, guide dogs for registered disabled people excepted, cannot be allowed on the train.

We regret that cycles (other than folding ones which will fit in the luggage racks) cannot be accommodated as there is no guarantee that the normal space in Coach A will be alongside the platforms, especially as we anticipate the train being in reverse formation.

 

CATERING. Great Western Railway plans to provide a buffet service from which a range of light refreshments can be purchased. Details will be included with your tickets.

 

ON BOARD SERVICES CLPG stewards and GWR Staff will be on board. There will be an on board raffle.

 

BOOKING CONDITIONS

All seats must be booked and paid for in advance.

Every effort will be made to run the train and provide advertised facilities. CLPG (the organiser) cannot   accept liability for any alteration, delay, curtailment or cancellation of the train or failure to provide an advertised facility, if this is outside its control. If the train is cancelled by the organiser, a full refund of ticket money will be given. No  liability for any consequential loss can be accepted. In the event of a request to cancel a booking more than a week before the running of the train, the organiser will consider a repayment, subject to a 10% administration charge. Requests for refunds made within a week of the date of the train will be refused unless the ticket(s) can be resold to other passengers. If granted, such refunds will be subject to a 20% administration charge.

The purchase of tickets constitutes an acceptance of these booking conditions
