Oh dear, and this coming on a day when GWR passengers are being encouraged to use Chiltern services due to Paddington being closed.

Maybe high levels of staff sickness aren’t just affecting XC.

Sunday might be a volunteer issue, but that doesn't quite explain the situation today.

Such an accusation is totally uncalled for. No self respecting rail employee would jeopardise their career by doing something so foolish.  Roll Eyes Angry Shocked

I suggested that might be the cause as where I once worked, they were always doing it throughout the year,which was unfair on people that were really sick.
