You couldn't make it up. The inbound 17.03 to Paddington was running 12 mins late. The train was announced as 'faulty.' It berthed at Pad. platform 11. All of the CIS displays said that it was due to return to Heathrow Terminal 4 - as usual. Hundreds touched in at the gateline, and boarded it including myself. Then it left at 17.20. All well and good. It stopped at Ealing Broadway as usual. But then it missed out West Ealing, Hanwell, Southall, and Hayes!!! Hundreds of commuters then found themselves at Heathrow Central - where they really didn't want to be.
