All up services in Cornwall are delayed to an as yet Unknown time due to a broken down HST at Camborne. No info available as yet when things will clear through.
CrossCountry have turned their Plymouth Penzance early am voyager at Par, and started the Glasgow service at par, making it the only train out of Cornwall at the current time.
Replacement buses are being sourced.

Normally by around 3-4 minutes by the time we reach liskeard on way home regardless of shift.

My down train has just passed par, and the 0703 is showing as next service and just delayed with no projection of time.

At a guess they will be waiting for the down sleeper loco to give the HST a tow out of the way.

Must have limped back to Penzance as Sleeper went straight through Camborne. Later 57605 off Sleeper hauled from Penzance to Laira.

The first service through Truro this morning was apparently at 0849 to Paddington. (CIS board showing this when I arrived at 0830)
Unbelievable the CIS screens were suggesting a 2nd London departure at 0854.
I didn't realise the signalling in Cornwall allowed a 4 min header.
