Correct: Monday October 1976,

Incorrect: Time, Stations and early/late

Hints - Try and get the day it was on e.g 1st, 2nd etc
Stations are correcxt but there is one more needed
The train was early but not 10 mins early

Need: 1 more station
How much time would be cut off journey

Stations are all correct, but the other arent although some are closer so ill give more hints

the train was early but it was less than 5 mins early, it set off in the morning before 10 am

Ok i'll post the whole answer in a few days if no one gets it, so far you have

Monday * October 1976
Stopped at Reading Bristol and Bath

But you still need

How early the train was (HINT - It was under five minutes)
The Number of the date it went e.g 19th October 1976 (it wasnt the 19th)
The time the train set off (HINT - It was before 10:00 am)
How much time the train was meant to cut off journey times.
