From the Southern Reporter

Quote
Borders Railway bosses have come in for criticism for mass cancellations of trains on the Tweedbank-to-Edinburgh route less than a week after the firmís chief executive promised that improvements were imminent.

No fewer than 15 scheduled services were cancelled on the 30-mile line on Sunday as drivers were not available.

There are, of course, those of us who don't even have 15 services on a Sunday!!

2019.

From a document I've seen it says the Sunday stopping service from Reading to Paddington will be two 9-car Class 345 trains per hour stopping all stations Reading to Southall, then Ealing Broadway and Paddington, and one 8-car Class 387 GWR service from Didcot to Paddington calling (after Reading) at Twyford, Maidenhead, Slough, Hayes, Southall, Ealing Broadway and Paddington.

So looking good.  Unless it's a typo, and it's a GWR document rather than a MTR Crossrail/TfL Rail one.
