13:18 Hereford to London Paddington due 16:25 will no longer call at Worcestershire Parkway Hl, Pershore, Evesham, Honeybourne, Moreton-In-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury and Hanborough.
It has been delayed between Malvern Link and Worcester Foregate Street and is now 47 minutes late.
This is due to a points failure.

According to RTT, the 57 miles from Shrub Hill to Oxford took 50.5 minutes.

I notice that the 05:11 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington Service was delayed by 16 minutes at Oxford yesterday. Was that due to coupling issues again?

Yes, though I think it was a procedural error rather than a fault with the sets.

Nothing on JourneyCheck (as I've mentioned elsewhere) but assuming http://iris2.rail.co.uk/tiger/ to be correct, the 17:34 Paddington to Hereford, 17:58 Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street and 18:58 Paddington to Hereford services are all five car short-formations this evening.

There were further short-formations earlier today including a very cosy 06:43 Worcester Shrub Hill to Paddington train.

Yes, all three were formed of 5-car units tonight.  The middle one of those three is probably better as a 5-car to be honest, but the first one especially really needs to be a 9-car.  The planned set for the 18:58 Hereford was used instead for the 19:04 Penzance for some reason.

17:58 is showing on JourneyCheck as shortformed tonight, but it isn’t.  Hopeless!

The other two are also 9-cars!

The 18.58 is five-car. I’m on it. It’s pretty cosy.

And when you really do need a short-train:

Quote
6:53 Worcester Foregate Street to Didcot Parkway due 08:41 will no longer call at Shipton, Finstock and Combe.
This is due to a fault on this train.
Will be formed of 3 coaches instead of 2.

Is it only when they move "west" that 165/166s have selective door opening fitted?

Yes, or at least that’s the only time it’s used.  The LTV route drivers and guards haven’t been trained on using it as it would only be needed once in a blue moon - this morning being that ‘once’.  Bit silly mind you!
