Last night the 19 30 Cardiff to Portsmouth Hbr started at Newport due, it was quoted as "train late from Depot".   A bit difficult to absorb at 19 30 at night when the unit comes off Fratton Depot at 06xx in the morning.

Could very easily of been a set swap at Bristol Temple Meads, or another train late from the depot, which delayed it.

Lots of unusually large passengers flowing ( Wink) about this evening on the Bristol-Cardiff corridor, due to Olympic^ football at the Millennium Stadium. So much so that FGW arranged ticket acceptance on First Buses between Bristol-Filton AW-Bristol Parkway to move passengers onto South Wales HSTs and off grossly overcrowded local DMUs. Particularly badly affected were Taunton-Cardiff services. I know because I attempted to board one at Temple Meads bound for Patchway. Gave up on that idea and took the bus alternative instead.

Years ago this one. But: Pullman Restaurant Service will start from Reading. This is due to a fault with lineside equipment earlier. Grin

Turned out some of the Food and the Chef were on a late running Paddington Bound Train Grin

Not surprised, certainly a fair amount of lighting in Southampton a few hours ago.

Indeed - lightning strike earlier on affected Eastleigh panel and caused a few signal/points issues, resolved fairly quickly.

"This is due to emergency services dealing with an earlier incident." That probably means person hit by a train, but as was mentioned above, it's been far too frequent of late and constant use of "person hit by a train" looks bad on them.

Also "debris on the line" and "trespasser on the line" / "due to an earlier trespass incident."

10:57 Reading to Newbury Racecourse due 11:16
This train will be cancelled.
This is due to poor weather conditions.

...well yes - but the weather has caused the race meeting to be abandoned, therefore removing the need for the train!

I don't think "This is indirectly due to poor weather conditions" is in the standard list  Grin
