1  Journey by Journey / London to Reading / (unharmed) person on track at Reading on: Today at 05:38:48 pm
Someone just took a shortcut from p7 to p8.
Not the wisest idea at 17:20 on a Friday evening, or at anytime for that matter.
Needless to say it got pretty much all of the platform staff and BTP interested, very quickly.

What might have happened on this one ?
http://www.realtimetrains.co.uk/train/C40319/2018/06/21/advanced

0603 Bristol Parkway to London Paddington - This service was cancelled between Swindon and London Paddington due to an issue with the train crew (TG).

Yet another delay to my journeys in what has been a very bad two weeks.

Problem with the doors at Cookham apparently. Now trains towards Reading from Maidenhead are delayed by 5-6 mins. So much for trying to use the trains for leisure on my day off.
4  Journey by Journey / Thames Valley Branches / Going nowhere at Bourne End on: June 19, 2018, 06:33:58 pm
It's taken an hour to get here from Marlow and there is jack all service to Maidenhead. Many taxis have been dispatched.

Now on the move on a train. 45 minutes late.
5  Journey by Journey / London to Reading / Re: Person hit by train 15/6 on: June 15, 2018, 04:05:16 pm
17:18 and 17:57 out of Paddington cancelled.

Cool. 1W02 is my usual evening service, I look forward to seeing how a 9-car unit operates.

My evening SMS informs me that the 17:30 will be 5 not 10. One to avoid.

A fault with the signalling system near Swindon is causing disruption to trains through this station.

As a result, services may be cancelled, delayed or revised.

Disruption is expected to continue until 09:30.

Following a fault with the signalling system at Oxford some lines will be reopened shortly. Disruption is expected until 20:00 07/06.
Impact:
Train services between Oxford and Reading may be delayed by up to 30 minutes or revised.

Is this related to the weather / flooding?

Trivial compared to the bad weather disruption on Swindon routes currently showing.

A fault with the signalling system between Reading and Newbury is causing disruption to trains travelling between these stations. Trains may be cancelled, delayed by up to 50 minutes or diverted.

Disruption is expected to continue until at least 10:00

Freddie Starr ate my track...

Due to urgent repairs to the track between Ealing Broadway and Hayes & Harlington trains have to run at reduced speed on some lines towards Slough.
Impact: Train services running through these stations may be delayed or revised. Disruption is expected until 14:00 25/05.
Customer Advice:
London Underground are conveying passengers between London Paddington and Ealing Broadway in both directions until further notice. Arrangements have been made for Great Western Railway rail tickets to be accepted for these journeys.
