Both yesterday and today the last service of the night from Reading to Gatwick has been cancelled due to staff shortage.   Last night it was replaced by a bus and I assume that will happen again tonight.

It also means the 05:10 from Gatwick back to Reading is cancelled because there is no unit stabling overnight.

Are these services still crewed by hired in staff from Southern?

23:34 Reading to Gatwick Airport due 01:07 will be reinstated and will now run as scheduled.

But the preceding service at 22:00 is now cancelled.

I can confirm that the 23:34 ran - I heard it. But it was the 20:29 from Reading that was cancelled; the 22:00 was its return trip from Gatwick.
