And while someone's sorting that out, maybe they could find the long one on Thames Valley service delays/problems as it has disappeared from the TV board altogether.

Thanks for the heads-up, ChrisB - yes, I'll look into that one, too.  Wink

Upon investigation, it appears to me that the 146 pages, containing some 2175 posts, in the 'Thames Valley infrastructure problems causing delays - ongoing, since October 2014' topic is still there, on 'the wider picture' board.  It is there because it has (and has always had) wider implications than just the Thames Valley.

Hope this helps!  Wink

Can we then amend the subject line? Or cut out the non-TV posts and put it back in the TV board? Seems odd to have TV in a Across the West board

Chris,

1. That topic has always been on the 'across the west' board, simply because most of the infrastructure problems originating in the Thames Valley have had, and will have, knock-on effects reaching as far as Pembroke or Penzance;

2. If you could kindly show me how to determine just which of those 2,175 posts in that existing topic are specific to the Thames Valley only, I will consider how best to split that topic.

Alternatively, I'll simply amend the topic heading to remove reference to 'Thames Valley'.

That's fine with me, Chris - I'll do that, together with a bit of collateral tidying up of our recent posts here.

Thanks for your input, as always.

It's TV infrastructure, but the trains that are disrupted run to and from places all across the west. So it's not really illogical.

I have now revised the heading of this topic, to emphasize that such infrastructure problems cause disruption elsewhere in the region.  Smiley

Good work CfN. I hope you will be adjusting the title soon to reflect the fact that there is an October 2nd next week as well Smiley

I'll get my coat Smiley

In fact I'm going to apologise because the subject was truncated on the device I was reading it on!

And to get things rolling again (err, or not..)

Due to a points failure at London Paddington some lines are blocked.
Impact: Train services running to and from this station may be delayed. Disruption is expected until 18:00 28/09.
Customer Advice: Due to a points failure outside London Paddington station some services may be altered this evening.

Due to a fault with the signalling system between Didcot Parkway and Swindon trains have to run at reduced speed on the line towards Swindon.
Impact: Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 15 minutes. Disruption is expected until 19:00 28/09.
