1  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2021 Delays and Cancellations on: November 12, 2021, 03:29:37 pm
The signalling problems between Didcot Parkway and Swindon/Oxford have been reported elsewhere but the impact on Cotswold Line services has been significant. In terms of services to the Cotswolds:

Quote
1W25 1250 London Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street
This service was cancelled due to a signalling systems failure (IF).

13:50 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 16:13 has been cancelled.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

14:50 London Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street due 17:12 has been cancelled.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

And whilst not on JourneyCheck yet, National Rail Enquiries is showing the following 15:20 Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street as being cancelled too. A number of return runs to London beginning to show up as cancellations too.

No suggestions of any alternative arrangements in place.

Cancellations to services between London Paddington and Slough

Due to a fault with the signalling system between London Paddington and Slough some lines are blocked.

Train services running to and from these stations may be cancelled or delayed. Disruption is expected until 07:00 11/11.

Now "disruption is expected until the end of the day."

Today was my first visit to my work place since March last year. It actually felt remarkably normal: the cycle to my local station, the walk from my destination to the office, the office systems and everything. Even my train journeys seemed very normal: the morning service was over ten minutes late waiting for a delayed service to clear the single track between Wolvercote and Charlbury and my lunchtime train home:

Quote
11:50 London Paddington to Hereford due 14:41 was terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-In-Marsh, Evesham, Worcestershire Parkway Hl, Worcester Shrub Hill, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link, Great Malvern, Colwall, Ledbury and Hereford.
This is due to a fault on this train.

with the return 15:18 HFD» (Hereford - next trains):PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains) cancelled.

It's warm but not excessively so. However:

Quote
Alterations to services between Charlbury and Evesham
Due to a speed restriction because of high track temperatures between Charlbury and Evesham trains have to run at reduced speed on all lines.
Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 20 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until the end of the day.

There's been delays throughout the day and similarly yesterday, some in excess of twenty minutes.

That said, I've no idea how many are actually been affected. I've been working from home for fifteen months now.
5  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold line - request for it to become clock face on: April 22, 2021, 12:25:55 pm
I’m sure there were trains in the past that would stop at Reading to pick up but unadvertised from London.

Veering wildly off topic here, wasn't there one such service (to Swansea?) a few years ago that was crush-loaded so the decision was taken to run it non-stop to Swindon leaving the Reading passengers who had boarded at Paddington to double back to their destination?

Clearly this thread isn't really active now but three evening peak cancellations in a row is worth mentioning:

Causing a fair bit of disruption through the evening peak and beyond:
