A knock on from the signalling problems between Didcot and Swindon this morning:

This is due to a fault with the signalling system.

No line updates on JourneyCheck but a speed restriction due to defective track between Oxford and Evesham is causing some degree of congestion including so far:

Quote
15:22 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington due 17:28 will no longer call at Slough.
It has been delayed between Worcester Shrub Hill and Oxford and is now 45 minutes late.
This is due to a speed restriction over defective track.

Quote
15:51 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington due 17:59 will be terminated at Reading.
It will no longer call at Slough and London Paddington.
It has been delayed at Charlbury and is now 45 minutes late.
This is due to a speed restriction over defective track.

Quote
17:38 Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington due 19:03 will be terminated at Reading.
It will no longer call at Slough and London Paddington.
This is due to a speed restriction over defective track.

outward bound 15:50 PAD:MIM surprisingly going beyond Oxford and arriving at MIM 28 minutes late

Quote
19:22 London Paddington to Hereford due 22:52 will be started from Reading.
It will no longer call at London Paddington and Slough.
This is due to a speed restriction over defective track.

later update

Line update now on JourneyCheck:

Quote
Delays to services between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill
Due to a speed restriction over defective track between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill trains have to run at reduced speed.
Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 45 minutes. Disruption is expected until 20:30 14/09.
Last Updated:14/09/2018 18:18

and the 15:14 Hereford to Paddington has just come through Wolvercote Junction 58 minutes late having been almost on time at Ascott-under-Wychwood.

Days like this certainly support the case for further redoubling at the eastern end of the line as per IndustryInsider's new thread today.

further update

Quote
18:22 London Paddington to Hereford due 21:32 will be diverted between Reading and Worcester Shrub Hill.
It will no longer call at Oxford, Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham and Pershore but will call additionally at Didcot Parkway.
It is being delayed between Reading and Worcester Shrub Hill and is now expected to be 15 minutes late.
This is due to urgent repairs to the track.
Will be formed of 5 coaches instead of 8.

another update

and for those who wanted to go beyond Oxford on the 18:22...

Quote
19:22 London Paddington to Hereford due 22:52 will be started from Reading.
It will no longer call at London Paddington and Slough.
It will be delayed at Reading and is expected to be 25 minutes late.
This is due to a speed restriction over defective track.

and has just left Reading 34 minutes late, with further delays of up to 45 minutes expected beyond Hanborough.

Things are certainly getting better. However:

Quote
17:52 London Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill due 20:06 has been cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

and

Quote
20:59 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington due 23:36 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

The wording of the 17:52 and timing - "Last Updated:13/09/2018 18:11" - suggests it was a late cancellation.

Just turned up on JourneyCheck ten minutes after service was due to depart:

5  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2018 cancellation and amendments log on: September 03, 2018, 06:49:06 pm
Pretty much a cancellation:

Quote
18:29 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 21:05 will be terminated at Worcester Shrub Hill.

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.

Although, as has been mentioned, the service seems to be getting better, over the last couple of weeks, more cancellations and amendments have been appearing in the morning peak service towards London. Today's example being:

Quote
04:47 Hereford to London Paddington due 07:52 will no longer call at Pershore, Kingham and Hanborough.
It has been delayed at Hereford and is now 18 minutes late.
This is due to a fault on this train.

From experience of previous years, it's as we get into October, and poor rail conditions start to become an issue, that the service starts to deteriorate significantly.

This one is an IET (and going to be cosy for a Friday as far as it goes):

Quote
17:22 London Paddington to Hereford due 20:26 will be terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham, Pershore, Worcester Shrub Hill, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link, Great Malvern, Colwall, Ledbury and Hereford but will call additionally at Didcot Parkway.
It is being delayed at London Paddington.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 9 coaches instead of 5.
8  Journey by Journey / London to Didcot, Oxford and Banbury / Re: Oxford Area Resignalling 2018 on: August 31, 2018, 06:00:48 pm
Passengers on the 15:22 Paddington to Great Malvern got to experience the benefits of the resignalling this afternoon.

As a result of a fault at the north end of Oxford station, the 15:22 was diverted onto platform 3, and then ran down to Wolvercote Junction on the up main (or whatever the correct terminology is!). Meanwhile, the 15:22 WOS:PAD ran towards Oxford on the up relief.

However, putting the Great Malvern train onto platform 3 at roughly the time the Paddington service was due did have an unfortunate but predictable consequence - there was an announcement on the 15:22 PAD:GMV advising passengers who thought they were on the Paddington train to change at Hanborough!

[edit to change one word]
9  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2018 cancellation and amendments log on: August 31, 2018, 08:19:46 am
A couple this morning:

Quote
06:52 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 09:37 will be terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham, Pershore, Worcester Shrub Hill, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern.
This is due to a fault on this train.

Last Updated:31/08/2018 08:04

and the return

Quote
09:54 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 12:28 will be cancelled.
This is due to a fault on this train.

edit to change return from starting from Oxford to full cancellation.

11  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2018 cancellation and amendments log on: August 24, 2018, 10:05:54 am
...so just the return journey which is affected.

Which starts to get a little tedious for those "affected" who use it for their regular commute when it becomes a weekly or twice weekly event!
12  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2018 cancellation and amendments log on: August 24, 2018, 07:53:26 am
Another of GWR's regular easy "fixes":

Quote
07:10 Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington due 08:51 will be started from Oxford.
It will no longer call at Moreton-in-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury and Hanborough.
This is due to this train being late from the depot.

Third time in 8 days this service has failed to run along the Cotswold Line.
13  Journey by Journey / London to the Cotswolds / Re: Cotswold Line - 2018 cancellation and amendments log on: August 22, 2018, 08:04:25 am
From Realtime Trains:

Quote
1P07 0447 Hereford to London Paddington

This service was cancelled throughout due to late arrival of an inbound service (YI).

Not on JourneyCheck as at 16:00 but National Rail Enquiries has the 16:22 Paddington to Great Malvern showing as cancelled. @GWRHelp on Twitter says it's "not running because of a fault on board".

So that's another faulty IET cancellation on the Cotswold Line today.
