I thought GW is awash with IETs with the revised timetable.

I thought GW is awash with IETs with the revised timetable.

Yes ... but I suspect a last minute problem - lots of them around but too many tucked up in bed for the weekend and no spare hanging around at Paddington.   By starting out at Reading, there was an extra 30 minutes to get a train ready and being Reading that happened to be a 3 car turbo.

I have an update (received yesterday) from GWR on IET maintenance - not had a chance to post it with appropriate visibility as the section "above the fold" is overfull today.

All the 800s had to be taken out of service for inspection due to a crack on a deflector plate found on several units.  They should, hopefully, be back in service by Monday following remedial work.

I've not been near the trains since March so no idea how many are actually being disrupted but there's a few things going on (or not) this afternoon:

Quote
13:18 Hereford to London Paddington due 16:24 will be diverted between Worcester Shrub Hill and Reading.
It will no longer call at Worcestershire Parkway Hl, Pershore, Evesham, Honeybourne, Moreton-In-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury, Hanborough and Oxford.
It has been previously delayed, will be further delayed at Reading and is expected to be 40 minutes late.
This is due to a points failure.

14:50 London Paddington to Worcester Foregate Street due 17:12 was terminated at Moreton-In-Marsh.
It will no longer call at Honeybourne, Evesham, Pershore, Worcestershire Parkway Hl, Worcester Shrub Hill and Worcester Foregate Street.
It has been delayed at Slough and is now 5 minutes late.
This is due to a fault on this train.

15:18 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington due 17:24 has been cancelled.
This is due to a points failure.

16:30 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 19:28 will be started from Oxford.
It will no longer call at Great Malvern, Malvern Link, Worcester Foregate Street, Worcester Shrub Hill, Worcestershire Parkway, Pershore, Evesham, Honeybourne, Moreton-In-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury and Hanborough.
This is due to a points failure.

17:57 Worcester Foregate Street to London Paddington due 20:24 will be cancelled.
This is due to a fault on this train.

The Paddington to Worcester service wasn't much revised during the peak of the lockdown, as several others were.  Every time I checked on RealTime Trains, the service appeared to be running flawlessly.  Many days of "right time railway".

Now with other services being repopulated with trains that had been withdrawn,  the more usual delays to Worcester line services will resume, no doubt
