To explain the shifting timescales, I gather some signalling cables were replaced, but when re-energised the signals were still faulty, so further fault finding is ongoing.

Just had a quick look at Open Trains and realtime Trains. Southcote junction seems to affected. West England trains are being held at various signals presumably talked pass. Line to Basingstoke seems to be closed nothing moving.

Just watched !K22 (1735 RFG Bedwyn (cancelled from Pad) held at Oxford Road Jn for 40 minutes just arrivng at Theale 40 late.

If you ga on real time trains and search for 1K22 you get 8 trains with that number.

Train services running to and from these stations may be delayed by up to 15 minutes or running non stop from Reading. Twyford and Maidenhead will not be served. Disruption is expected until 08:30 08/06.
Customer Advice
Due to a signalling problem, only one of the two London bound lines is available. To reduce congestion and delays in the area, GWR (Great Western Railway) and TfL» (Transport for London - about) Rail train services are running non-stop between Reading and Slough to reduce congestion and delays.
.
If you are at Twyford or Maidenhead and travelling to stations from Slough to London Paddington, you are advised to travel via Reading and change for connecting train services to Slough and London Paddington.

Just in time for the Friday "rush hour"

Delays to services between Slough and London Paddington

Due to urgent repairs to the track between Slough and London Paddington trains have to run at reduced speed on all lines.

Train services running to and from these stations may be delayed by up to 10 minutes. Disruption is expected until 18:00 02/07.

Customer Advice
One of the 2 lines that run into Paddington is closed following the report of a track defect. Network Rail engineers are investigating, and there may be delays due to congestion in the area.


......and

Delays to services at Reading

Due to trespassers on the railway at Reading all lines are disrupted.
