This type of rail report always surprises me. Its saying the train is late, because it's late starting. That's not the reason its late, the reason is why its late starting!
I frequently hear announcements similar to the following at Paddington and similar stations. 'ABC train is late departing due to its late arrival.' or 'ABC train is late due to a delayed previous train'. They might as well say the 'the train is late' and leave it at that.

Not the best start to the week:

Quote
1P04 0511 Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington
Great Western Railway service
This service was cancelled throughout due to late arrival of an inbound service (YI).

Quote
07:10 Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington due 08:51 will be started from Oxford.
It will no longer call at Moreton-in-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury and Hanborough.
This is due to a points failure.

I have a question which I'm sure the experts on this site will be able to answer! Today, the 07.10 from Moreton in Marsh, which was started from Oxford, arrived at Paddington 'on time'. When the performance statistics are being compiled, does that show as an 'on time' train despite the fact that it was cancelled between Moreton in Marsh and Oxford?  If so, over the course of a year and if repeated on different lines, it could distort the figures.

It would come under the CaSL (Cancelled and Significant Lateness) regulations.

See page 5 of this document for more details:  http://orr.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0007/22795/performance-quality-report.pdf

Thanks, that's interesting. So it looks like the regulations are designed to incentivise controllers to make sure trains reach their destinations and are not written off early -- but there isn't a corresponding incentive to make sure they start from the correct station.

Now, did you read that slowly and carefully?

CaSL was developed as a supplementary measure to PPM and delay minutes to ensure trains were not ‘written off’ by controllers or signallers once they exceeded their PPM threshold. This measure helps performance recovery by not terminating a train short of its final destination and incentivising controllers or signallers to ensure the train arrives less than 30 minutes late.

A cancellation is defined as the termination of a train prior to reaching its destination or the failure of a train to depart from its point of departure; for which it was scheduled to run in the applicable timetable. There are two types of cancellations:
  • Part – A train is considered to be a part cancellation if it covers more than half the scheduled mileage and either failed to run the whole journey or failed to stop at any station on the way. Trains completing their scheduled journey but arriving at their final destination late by 120 minutes or more also count as part cancellations;
  • Full – A train is considered to be a full cancellation if it covers less than half the scheduled mileage, or does not run at all.
