Platforms 3, 4 and 5 closed at Didcot Parkway after a train's pantograph got tangled in the overhead late last night.


Surprised no additional stops, when I looked, being added to services from Bristol, South Wales and Cheltenham as a result of above but I suppose 387's stabled at Swindon can be re-routed using main lines for this am's traffic to the smoke or is that too simplistic for Swindon Control to implement.
They have been some additional stops inserted into some evening services to Bristol TM: 16:30, 17:00, 17:30 (? - included in some info and not others) & 18:00 at Tilehurst, Goring & St, and Cholsey.

And at Didcot on a couple of the Oxford-Paddington peak expresses so that the two per hour service can be maintained.

Thereís a 6-car Turbo out doing RDG-PAD locals this morning, it did 2R11 0642 from PAD and appears to be scheduled for 2P28 0818 from RDG. Iím guessing that this might be as a consequence of the OHLE damage which happened at Didcot a couple of days ago? Everything Iíve seen on locals on Saturdays since the start of last year has been 387s, indeed Iím currently on one.
