Commuters warned of limited train service
Engineering work still ongoing.
South West Trains will continue to run a limited train service on the west of England line until at least next week.
Engineers are repairing track damage caused by the bad weather conditions.
The on-going engineering work means that speed restrictions must remain in place on several sections of the line.
As a result South West Trains is currently only able to run a two-hourly service to and from Exeter St Davids. Services which usually run between London Waterloo and Exeter will continue to run as normal until they reach Yeovil Junction, where one train every two hours will run through to Exeter St Davids and one train every two hours will terminate at Yeovil Junction and return to Waterloo.

Due to the required speed restrictions, train journeys will take longer than usual.
Some train services will not call at Feniton, Whimple and Pinhoe stations.

However, these stations will be served by a replacement bus service which will continue to operate between Exeter St Davids and Axminster.
The train company has apologised to passengers for the on-going disruption.
Due to planned engineering work taking place over the weekend, a further amended timetable will be in operation.
