Main (summary) departure board at Cheltenham Spa, UK
This is a more legible board than that at Bristol Parkway.
The lack of seat reservations on the 1822 to Plymouth is probably due to technical problems with one of Virgin's Voyager trains, or an unexpected train formation (usually less carriages than normal)
With Virgin trains all-but ceasing cross-country services to nearby Gloucester for the Winter 2003/4 timetable, Cheltenham Spa will become an even more important interchange station between cross-country trains and local services to Gloucester and the surrounding towns.

Platform Departure board at Cheltenham Spa, UK
This is an example of the (very clear) calling-points screens installed by Wales and West (now Wessex) Trains at Cheltenham Spa. This type of screen is used by many TOCs.
The "C" in the bottom left corner indicates the Cardiff train is operated by Central Trains
