Note the calling pattern in that it doesn't call Westbury. The line will remain, it is notice of removal of a passenger service over a route. So I'm sure there will still be diverts in emergencies, engineering work over the chord.
(Note if you copy the above link onto your website it will only work for 7 days).... N.B. The train to use this chord was the 1C90 17.06 Paddington to Bristol Temple Meads.
Nathan Many thanks Nathan
