MBO Marlborough Branch

  70.12	Savernake Junction with BHL
  71.72	connection with AND (16.50)
  75.35	connection with AND (19.26)
  75.58	MARLBOROUGH HIGH LEVEL formerly M.

There was a complex arrangement in the Marlborough/Savernake area pre-grouping.  The GWR rationalised MBO and diverted the route into AND at 71.57 and closed the section north.  Marlborough station (and environs) was retained for goods.  The remaining portions were remiled as per AND, thus:

  16.56	Savernake Junction with BHL (70.12)
  16.25	connection with AND

section between 16.25 and 18.75 closed

  18.75	new end of line
  19.16	connection with AND (MBO end)
  19.26	connection with AND (AND end)
  19.52	MARLBOROUGH HIGH LEVEL formerly M.
