13:00 London Paddington to Plymouth due 16:55 will be delayed between Reading and Didcot Parkway by 9 minutes, will be further delayed at Chippenham and is expected to be 16 minutes late.
This is due to a speed restriction over an embankment.

High winds perchance?

High winds, that are so isolated it only affects one train between Reading and Chippenham? Cheesy

This is due to a wartime bomb near the railway.

A member of the public handed in an old hand grenade at Newquay police station. The railway station fell within the initial exclusion zone.

There was mass disruption in the centre of Newquay on Tuesday (september 18) after a man walked into a police station with a hand grenade.

The bomb squad were called in as the police station and neighbouring train station were sealed off by officers. The police station was evacuated.

The incident caused disruption to train services running though the town with bomb disposal experts not arriving on scene until several hours later.

Not sure what to make of this one:

18:35 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 21:25
Facilities on the 18:35 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 21:25.
Toilet facilities are available as normal.
This is due to a fault on this train.

Is this a new one?

15:03 London Paddington to Penzance due 20:40 has been delayed at Pewsey and is now 20 minutes late.
This is due to this train not stopping in the correct position at a station.

Maybe an alternative way of reporting the train overshot the station platform.

I can recall being on a slam door train many years ago from Paddington that overshot / forgot to stop at Acton Main Line. The train came to a halt shortly after and then reversed back to Acton ML. I'm not sure that would be an acceptable practice today.
