Cancellations to services between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill

Due to a broken down train earlier today between Oxford and Worcester Shrub Hill fewer trains are able to run.

Train services running through these stations may be cancelled, delayed by up to 30 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 11:30 17/09.

A little disruption but certainly nothing significant:

Quote
06:50 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 09:31 will be terminated at Worcester Shrub Hill.
It will no longer call at Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern.
It is being delayed at Moreton-in-Marsh.
This is due to a fault on this train.

08:25 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington due 10:57 will be started from Oxford.
It will no longer call at Worcester Foregate Street, Worcester Shrub Hill, Pershore, Evesham, Honeybourne, Moreton-in-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury and Hanborough.
This is due to this train being late from the depot.

and earlier (from Realtime Trains)

Alterations to services between Didcot Parkway and Oxford

Due to a broken down train between Didcot Parkway and Oxford the line towards Oxford is blocked
.
Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 30 minutes or revised. Disruption is expected until 21:00 19/09.

Main casualty being:

Quote
17:52 London Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill due 20:10 will be terminated at Oxford.
It will no longer call at Hanborough, Charlbury, Shipton, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Evesham, Pershore and Worcester Shrub Hill.
This is due to a fault on a train in front of this one.

which seems to have been static at Culham for over an hour (and, according to a post on Twitter is reversing back towards Didcot)

The following 18:22 Paddington to Hereford service was 32 minutes late through Didcot North, and departed Oxford 47 late.

As for the 19:22 PAD:HFD:

Quote
19:22 London Paddington to Hereford due 22:54 will be diverted between Reading and Worcester Shrub Hill.
It will no longer call at Oxford, Hanborough, Charlbury, Kingham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Honeybourne, Evesham and Pershore.
It is being delayed between Reading and Worcester Shrub Hill and is now expected to be 1 minute late.

The 17:52 finally reached Oxford 108 minutes late. Presumably those wanting to travel on to the Cotswolds will have to join those decanted from the 19:22 at Reading on the 20:22 Paddington to Great Malvern.

A bit of a meltdown today, apparently caused by trespassers near Great Malvern:

Well at first the report was someone was hit by a train at a crossing point near Malvern Link, a sign at Foregate street said there was a fatality. Local people in Malvern began telling stories in the shops of a man dragged along by a train and died later. That then changed and the news is no one was hit. A man was chasing his dog and the driver thought he hit him so stopped. Long knock on delays.

Meanwhile, the 07:22 Paddington - Great Malvern had problems between Moreton-in-Marsh and Honeybourne, arrived at Shrub Hill 35 late and was cancelled from there to Great Malvern, with RTT reporting this as being "due to the train operator's request (TB)".

The return working was cancelled in its entirety:
Quote
10:45 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 13:28 will be cancelled.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Additional Information
Customers are advised to travel on the next available train service.

And now (15:00), it has disappeared from JourneyCheck - so presumably we've found a crew.

By my reckoning, this is the most cancelled peak time service this year as far as Cotswold Line running is concerned:

Quote
07:10 Moreton-in-Marsh to London Paddington due 08:51 will be cancelled.
This is due to a broken down train.

Was a 3-car vice 2-car due to a shortage of 2-cars.  Too long for the platforms at the stations listed.

This is due to a fault on this train.

Traction problems and a wet rail leading to a pre-emptive fly-by at Honeybourne?
