Does anyone know when the 2018-19 figures are likely to be released? Normally they come out in December but the ORR website is still showing the 2017-18 figures as the most current.

This is due to a shortage of train crew.

and the following service...

return workings also cancelled needless to say.

and the service after...

Quote
17:34 London Paddington to Hereford due 20:25 will be started from Worcester Shrub Hill.
It will no longer call at London Paddington, Reading, Oxford, Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-In-Marsh and Evesham.
This is due to the train making extra stops because a train was cancelled.

Pathetic

A few bits and pieces this morning:

06:43 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington due 08:40 will be terminated at Oxford.

07:50 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 10:11 will be started from Oxford.

And with it running beyond Moreton-In-Marsh from next week, it'll be far less likely to be cancelled - I suspect that honour will fall on the following 'halts' train should the Cotswold Line be in trouble for any reason.

And on the third weekday of the new timetable...

17:03 Didcot Parkway to Moreton-In-Marsh due 18:07 will be terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Combe, Finstock, Charlbury, Ascott-Under-Wychwood, Shipton, Kingham and Moreton-In-Marsh.

Nothing to do with the new timetable; just your common every day garden "fault on this train":

Quote
13:50 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 16:12 was terminated at Reading.
It will no longer call at Oxford, Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-In-Marsh, Evesham, Pershore, Worcester Shrub Hill, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern.

.....and a good start to the first "working day" of the new timetable......

GWR flooding the media with the "this is nothing to do with the new timetable" comms.
They must be cursing the timing though.

But what will be interesting is the mix of the signalling problems and the new timetable. Under the old timetable, services could often make up time once they'd got through the problem area. Now a lot of the slack has been removed that "elasticity" is no longer there.

Oh, and delays are now expected until 12:00
11  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2019 cancellation and amendments log on: December 15, 2019, 03:58:25 pm
As far as Cotswold Line running was concerned, the 15:50 Paddington to Moreton-in-Marsh service was the most cancelled service in 2018, failing to get beyond Oxford on 41 occasions. Prior to the new timetable coming in this weekend, it retained its "most cancelled" title in 2019 but with just 17 cancellations. And, appropriately enough, for its last running:

Quote
1W32 1550 London Paddington to Oxford
Departing on 13th December 2019
This service was cancelled between Oxford and Moreton-in-Marsh due to late arrival of an inbound service (YI).

It will no longer call at Pershore, Evesham, Honeybourne, Moreton-in-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury, Hanborough, Oxford, Reading, Slough and London Paddington.
This is due to train crew being delayed by service disruption.

07:10 Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington due 08:51 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

so sprint to station to catch earlier 05:28 HFD:PAD

Quote
05:28 Hereford to London Paddington due 08:28 will call additionally at Kingham.
It has been previously delayed, has been further delayed at Charlbury and is now 18 minutes late.
This is due to the train making extra stops because a train was cancelled.

in fact, it was held at MIM until 07:10 to run to timings of the cancelled service.

Looking at http://iris2.rail.co.uk/tiger/, which I trust far more than Journeycheck on such matters, a number of short-formations are running around the Cotswolds this afternoon/evening including:

1522 WOS:PAD
1622 PAD:GMV
1722 PAD:HFD

and edit to add

1752 PAD:WOS

Journeycheck is now showing the full monty, so to speak!
