The pattern that I'm seeing over the past month or so is of fewere cancellations, but a lot of late running, especially with down trains in the evening peak.

I'd like to propose the 17:22 Paddington - Hereford as being the least reliable train on the whole of GWR:

Mon Jun 25 : 40 late
Tue Jun 26 : 51 late
Wed Jun 27 : 27 late
Thu Jun 28 : 23 late
Fri Jun 29 : 23 late
Mon Jul 2 : 12 late
Tue Jul 3 : 68 late
Wed Jul 4 : 25 late
Thu Jul 5 : Operated non-stop between Oxford and Evesham - but still 19 late
Fri Jul 6 : Sorry - I don't have a record for this date
Mon Jul 9 - Fri Jul 20 : did not operate on account of the Oxford blockade
Mon Jul 23 : 71 late
Tue Jul 24 : 23 late
Wed Jul 25 : Cancelled Oxford - Hereford
Thu Jul 26 : 37 late
Fri Jul 27 : 47 late
Mon Jul 30 : 24 late
Tue Jul 31 : diverted via Stroud on account of a bridge bash near Evesham. 41 late
Wed Aug 1 : 20 late
Thu Aug 2 : 32 late
Fri Aug 3 : 39 late
Mon Aug 6 : 25 late
And for Tue Aug 7 : drumroll please,,,, just 12 late

8 Aug - 39 late
9 Aug - 37 late

15:22 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 17:58 will be terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham, Pershore, Worcester Shrub Hill, Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

and return 18:29 GMV:PAD similarly affected.

Hopefully GWR will managed to get the 15:50 Paddington to Moreton-in-Marsh beyond Oxford today...

[later]

I get to Oxford station just after 16:30 and there's an HST on platform 3. Presumably the 15:22 having decanted its passengers. No, it's the 15:22 ready to go through to Great Malvern after all. Fortunately, slightly late so I'm able to catch it.

Big problems at Worcester:

Quote
Delays to services between Worcester Shrub Hill and Oxford

Due to a fault with the signalling system at Worcester Shrub Hill all lines are blocked. Disruption is expected until 13:30 14/08.

Train services between Worcester Shrub Hill and Oxford may be delayed.

I suspect knock-on disruption will run long into the afternoon which is now expected until "until 14:30".

12:00 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington due 14:27 has been delayed previously and is now 98 minutes late from Moreton-in-Marsh.
This is due to a fault with the signalling system earlier today.

Plenty disruption today

Noticed a couple of turbo units at Littleton and Badsey LC on both up and down services around the middle of the day today
