Now, was that the wires or more generally? Many trains disrupted this morning, including HSTs not requiring juice from wires, so undure why these would be delayed on the Main Line?

On a more complex railway, there is more to go wrong  Sad

05:47 Maidenhead to London Paddington due 06:32
05:47 Maidenhead to London Paddington due 06:32 was terminated at Hayes & Harlington.
It will no longer call at Southall, Ealing Broadway and London Paddington.
This is due to failure of the electricity supply.

Can someone stick 50p in the meter please?

It's these new-fangled electric signals, that's what. Bring back oil lamps!

But HEX units do and they run Main Line.

Terminating an UP direction train at Hayes would not indicate a system wide OLE power failure, the Grid supply point is at Kensal Green (just east of OOC)  Its possible the Unit was faulty and need to get into West Ealing or there was and issue with the OLE that needed to be inspected before any more electric trains could pass over it
