It seems the down main is closed in the affected section. I'm crawling along the relief on 1W02, at least since the Ealing area to Slough.

TfL rail have tweeted that it's an empty passenger service that has derailed.
Lots of ire directed at GWR and their 'operational incident'.

[ Also reports of a lineside fire near Southall overnight ]

Is this strictly necessary, or is there a risk of getting lost inside?

This made for some very cosy trains on the Basingstoke to Reading line this morning.
Multiple people were unable to board the local stopping service at Mortimer, one of the two shuttle sets was running as a two car.
