    • 2020 June 3, Andrew Mourant, “A safer railway in a greener habitat”, in Rail, page 58:
      A tree had been blown down on the track east of Chippenham. Bath Spa station became a scene of milling confusion. One minute we were told that trains were running. Then they weren't. Then they were again. Not a sound basis on which to try rejigging a business trip.
