I think there may have been a signal or signalling failure near Didcot North Junction yesterday that threw a lot of the timetable out of the window

There was which caused disruption from late morning to mid-afternoon. A number of the Oxford to/from Paddington services which didn't run from/to the north Cotswolds were cancelled but the two quoted were the only Cotswold cancellations.

Thursday March 14:

RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) reports 1P11, 05:14 Shrub Hill - Paddington, "cancelled due to an issue with the train crew (TG)".

With the following 0523 Hereford to London Paddington and 0643 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington both five car short-formations (though the 0643 has been five cars for the last three days so maybe planned due to Cheltenham?).

And for the record, from yesterday morning:

As previously reported the 0523 Hereford to London Paddington was cancelled between Worcester Shrub Hill and London Paddington due to a problem with the traction equipment (MD). As a result, the 0643 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington was 52 minutes late by the time it hit Oxford and 56 late into Paddington; the 0700 Worcester Shrub Hill to Didcot Parkway was terminated at Oxford arriving 42 minutes late; and the 0713 Great Malvern to London Paddington was 34 minutes late at Oxford and 36 late to Paddington.

05:23 Hereford to London Paddington due 08:24 was terminated at Evesham.
It will no longer call at Honeybourne, Moreton-In-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury, Hanborough, Oxford, Reading and London Paddington.
This is due to a fault on this train.

As a result, the following services have been significantly delayed. The short-formed 06:43 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington which will be picking up the displaced passengers is currently running 47 minutes late.
11  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: 2024 Delays and Cancellations - North Cotswold Line on: March 08, 2024, 10:54:20
A lot of disruption in the morning peak due to:

Quote
Cancellations to services between London Paddington and Hereford via Oxford

Following a safety inspection of the track at Evesham all lines have now reopened. Disruption is expected until 12:00 08/03.

Train services between London Paddington and Hereford via Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill are returning to normal but some services may still be cancelled, delayed or revised. Some stations between Worcester Shrub Hill and Didcot Parkway will not be served.

Customer Advice

Following a track defect at Evesham earlier, services on the North Cotswold Line have resumed but residual delays may continue.

This is due to a broken down train.

With the cancellation of the 15:17 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington and 15:18 Hereford to London Paddington, followed by the diversion of the 16:32 Great Malvern to London Paddington due to a safety inspection of the track, that means no up services from the Cotswolds to London for the best part of four hours.

It's been a messy day for many reasons - and it'll be interesting to see how bad the service was today overall - but not all the cancellations can be put down to the weather. It's unfortunate that services were cancelled due to more trains than usual needing repair etc when the weather was already causing so much disruption.
