....so this is going well......on the upside, I guess the inevitable Sunday cancellations due to staff shortages aren't having such an impact?

Elements of a perfect storm this morning. Don't know what the reported signalling problem at Didcot was this morning, needless to say whist waiting at my favourite signal 907 contemplating a Didcot East grade separated junction, I missed my connection - which was a pity, as it had my reserved seat on a busy Monday morning commute.  Then, in a move I have never seen before, an over-long steel freight backed out of Didcot Yard on to the Up Relief and drew into Platform 4 completely blocking the departure of 0632 HST up local while it waited the road. 

The empty stock of the second HST up local (0706 ex Didcot) broke down at Maidenhead and the Up Main looked like it was blocked while the driver/fitter inspected the train. Heavy delays ensued crossing from Mains to Reliefs and back again.  A final long pause, followed by a switch back onto the Reliefs at Ealing Broadway (of unknown cause) meant the day was already uncomfortable warm when awaiting the bus in Praed Street!

Wrong sort of weather I think.

My train was delayed by 15 minutes.. It's a lot less of a issue on a train with working air con (I was on the 7.33 Mai to Pad)  than for some of the people on the old style trains though I imagine

A double dose of entertainment:

Delays to services at Didcot Parkway
Due to a fault with the signalling system at Didcot Parkway:
Train services running through this station may be delayed by up to 20 minutes. Disruption is expected until 14:30 19/06.

and

Alterations to services between London Paddington and Hayes & Harlington
Due to checking reports of an obstruction on the line between London Paddington and Hayes & Harlington trains have to run at reduced speed on all lines.
Train services running to and from these stations may be delayed or revised. Disruption is expected until 14:30 19/06.

Looking at National Rail Enquiries, significant disruption at Paddington and Reading. Can't see things settling down by 14:30.

I've just taken a quick peek at Open Train Times - there are currently 9 trains queued on the UM between Hayes and Burnham but then you have to go back as far as Cholsey to find the next one - so I'd say the rush hour is most definitely not looking good.

Historically it seems that above 25c and there's a chance of weather related disruption, and above 30c it's likely they'll be disruption.

I would expect a disruptive peak.  My thermometer has nudged over 30.
