Not so fast!..... Sad

13:03 London Paddington to Plymouth due 16:18 has been delayed at London Paddington and is now 12 minutes late.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 5 coaches instead of 10.

It was 12 minutes late due to coupling up to make it a 10-car, as the second set arrived at 12:58, off of the 12:01 from Oxford.  For some reason that change in length wasn't updated on JourneyCheck, but it did become a 10-car.

Several further changes:

17:30 Paddington to Taunton now 10-cars, together with return 21:28 Taunton to Paddington.
17:45 Paddington to Swansea now a 9-car.

But, 17:15 Paddington to Carmarthen and 17:42 Paddington to Cheltenham now 5-cars.

None of those changes have been made on JourneyCheck!  Roll Eyes

I was told, unofficially, so don't know if it was speculation that some units have had to be stopped to have their wheelsets checked after running through floodwater over the weekend.

Indeed II its frustrating for those of us outside the rail industry that Journeycheck is all we have to go on and not helpful when its not correct.

Thank you for keeping us correctly informed throughout the day. Pleased to see long distance SW services and most peak time trains ended up with the correct number of carriages.

Given that there were far fewer shortforms yesterday, and none today (so far) that looks like a distinctly possible explanation.

At least 3 DIAGRAMS that is, over 20 SERVICES half length again.
Logged

A proper intercity train has a minimum of 8 coaches, gangwayed throughout, with first at one end, and a full sized buffet car between first and standard.
It has space for cycles, surfboards,luggage etc.
A 5 car DMU is not a proper inter-city train. The 5+5 and 9 car DMUs are almost as bad.

Had various text alerts to say six services now back to full length but not reflected on Journeycheck again.

Indeed, at least some have been corrected on JourneyCheck now including the 16:45 PAD-SWA, the 17:00 PAD-TAU, and the 17:18 PAD-OXF. 

The 16:22 PAD-GMV is also a 9-car (802114), as is the return 19:42 GMV-PAD but both still showing 5 on JourneyCheck.

That makes no shortforms this evening at all.

From that report:

Quote
"We aim to restore 100% services [on the line] by the end of the current business year [in March]," Mr Fukasawa said.

Four months to replace 10 trains, each 12-car, and capable of over 200 mph - impressive. Here, it would take longer to arrange the first inquiry into whether they were really needed.

Without going too much off-topic, I understand that the 10 new trains were destined for another line and are nearing completion. The older trains on that other line will therefore have to soldier on for a while longer.

1A02, the 06:30 IET from Didcot (ex-BTM) to Paddington short-formed of 5 cars today for the third day running. A busy train at the best of times particularly as it stops also at Slough on the Up Main. Today also quite delayed, first at Swindon and then Maidenhead where it had ended up behind 1P04, the 0708 up IET. I do hope this degraded service returns to normal PDQ.

I think this will be fixed in December as the 0630 will no longer exist.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of commuting between now and 15th December  Sad
