Unusual and slightly disconcerting for a normal midweek service (or is it the half-term effect?):

Quote
13:22 London Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill due 15:27 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

15:52 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington due 18:00 will be cancelled.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

and something from last Friday:

1W36 1752 London Paddington to Oxford
Departing on 25th October 2019
This service was cancelled between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill due to trespass (XA).

Does the stock for this working usually travel to Hereford via The Severn Tunnel and Abergavenny?  The blockade on The Marches Line will be operative for at least a week, I heard on't wireless.

Haven't had a chance to look at the full effects of this though it did put a massive hole in the afternoon schedule:

Cancellations to services between Oxford and Moreton-In-Marsh

Following a broken down train between Oxford and Moreton-in-Marsh all lines have now reopened.

Train services running through these stations are returning to normal but some services may still be cancelled, delayed by up to 45 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 20:00 29/10.

Seems to have been the 13:22 Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill which broke down between Wolvercote Junction and Charlbury. Realtime Trains says it eventually arrived at Charlbury 136 late before being returned to Oxford.

The 14:21 Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street was terminated at Oxford. The 15:22 Paddington to Great Malvern left Oxford 71 late and is now terminating at WOS. And the 15:50 Paddington to Moreton-in-Marsh was cancelled throughout (for the second day running).

Due to something on the track damaging an air pipe.

I wondered that.  I guess there are no paths for an additional down ECS working between Worcester Shrub Hill and Hereford at that time of day.  The long single line sections have a severely limiting affect on capacity.

In normal times, there are three GWR trains that start at Hereford in the morning:

    the 04:47 to Paddington spends the night at Hereford;
    the 05:28 starts as ECS from Stoke Gifford (at 03:30); and
    the 06:42 starts as ECS from Stoke Gifford (at 04:43).

For this week, the first two are both spending the night at Hereford.

The third one is still setting off from Stoke Gifford at 04:43, but probably can't get to Hereford via Worcester and Malvern in time to depart at 06:42. As it is, it's spending 1:20 waiting time in Eckington loop, between Cheltenham and Worcester.

Attached is a quick version of the track occupation diagram early in the morning. The green lines are the GWR trains; the red ones are WMR. The dashed green line is the 06:42 HFD-PAD. It looks as if it could get to Hereford by an early path crossing the 05:28 HFD-PAD at Ledbury - but it would have to leave Stoke Gifford earlier in order to do that.

11:20 London Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street due 13:44 was terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham, Pershore, Worcester Shrub Hill and Worcester Foregate Street.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

Looking at the last updated timing, seems it might have been a very late call. And (almost immediate change) maybe GWR are sorting something out:
