I have to report that yesterday's 1622 ran absolutely bang to time as far as MIM, and possibly further.

Former FGW/GWR regular passenger. No more. Despicable company.

That explains its late inward departure from GMV, which was my return from MIM. Still early into Oxford though.

By amazing co-incidence, my season ticket expired on 6 July so I'm driving to my local Park & Ride and enjoying the walk in. Certainly quicker and more efficient than the bus replacement but it won't replace the trains once they're back. Meanwhile, on the Cotswold Line:

Quote
17:26 Worcester Foregate Street to Hanborough due 18:50 will be cancelled.
This is due to a fault on this train.

and:

Quote
19:34 Hanborough to Hereford due 21:32 will be cancelled.
This is due to a fault on this train.

as well as a couple of inconveniences:

Quote
Facilities on the 17:50 Hanborough to Great Malvern due 19:22.
Toilet facilities are not available.

Facilities on the 19:43 Great Malvern to Hanborough due 21:15.

How it seems to be working at Hanborough is that buses turn up from Oxford, Oxford Parkway & Didcot Parkway at about twenty past the hour to decant passengers for the Worcester/Hereford bound service at half past the hour, and to carry forward passengers from the service that terminates at about quarter past the hour.

So around now, three buses have arrived at Hanborough to fit in with the 12:59 WOS:HND and 14:30 HND:WOS...

This is due to this train being late from the depot.

14:30 Hanborough to Worcester Shrub Hill due 15:32 will be cancelled.

Getting to the end of the Oxford blockade. Today JourneyCheck has an 'other' entry that may be the shortest replacement possible:

05:11 Worcester Shrub Hill to Hanborough due 06:13 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

07:02 Hanborough to Worcester Foregate Street due 08:15 will be started from Worcester Shrub Hill.

It's in the same league as Hove to Brighton and Portsmouth and Southsea to Portsmouth Harbour

And another one:

22:36 Worcester Foregate Street to Moreton-in-Marsh due 23:20 will be reinstated.
It will be terminated at Worcester Shrub Hill.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.
