Today is an interesting one, as the following are listed as 5-car on NP057 diagram (the only alterations I can see so far today):

1L16, 06:30 Cheltenham Spa to Paddington
1B17, 09:15 Paddington to Cardiff
1L54, 11:56 Cardiff to Paddington
1C18, 14:30 Paddington to Weston-Super-Mare
1A27, 17:10 Weston-Super-Mare to Paddington
1G88, 19:48 Paddington to Worcester Shrub Hill

However, whilst 1L16 had 802007 allocated to it (a 5-car), 1B17 and the subsequent workings have 800304 (a 9-car) and I'm pretty sure I just watched a 9-car pass Slough on Railcam working 1B17.  If that's the case, you might think that 1L16 was a 5-car which was swapped to a 9-car at Paddington, but both trains arrived and departed from the same platform (number 4), with no sign of any ECS moves so they have to be the same set.  I suspect 802007 (which has no other allocations besides 1L16) was swapped with 800304 last minute and all six trains above will in fact be worked by a 9-car as booked.  That means they are all listed erroneously on JourneyCheck as shortformed - not the first time that's happened.

I'll watch the next couple of its workings pass Slough to confirm the length of the train, unless anyone is out and about and can do the job for me, or travelled on/saw 1L16, or any of the others, this morning.

1B17 is listed on the screens at Swindon as going to be nine cars (with first class at the front).

I saw 1L16 at Didcot Parkway and it was definitely 800304.

May thanks, chaps.  So, not short formations today then currently.

Didn't spot any others yesterday in the end.

Today, there's been two so far:

1W11, 05:12 Paddington-Moreton (definitely no problem with that being a 5-car!)
1P14, 07:10 Moreton-Paddington (likely to have been full and standing after Oxford)

No more showing as yet.

So that's 13 shortforms for the five weekdays of this week, equating to roughly 1.75% of trains.  We'll see what the weekend brings...
