I have been grumbling a lot about GWR and this service over the last few months but I would like to take the opportunity to say thanks to the GWR employee, I think it was the station manager, who today used the station PA at Didcot Parkway to apologise for the continual delays to this service.

He also mentioned that GWR were also looking at problems with evening peak services out of Oxford to Didcot, I don't know what these issues are, other than the fact that all services are now 2 carriages and so are always overcrowded.

Another week and another update:

M - 14L, T- 6L, W - 9L, Th - 9L, F - 9L.
For the last 4 weeks
RT -  5% and RT - 5mins 24%

Given that a lot of these delays are caused by the timetable not working who is reponsible for the delay payments? Are NR paying GWR as the timetable approver or are GWR paying NR as the timetable requestor?

A much better performance from this service this week.
Has there been any change of how this service is signalled at Didcot East as it appears to have taken less time to get across the junction?
Several days this week it has been displayed at 8 - 15 minutes late and then turned up only a couple of minutes late.

So performance this week was M - RT, T - 3L, W - 4L, Th - 5L, F- RT
So that is now RT - 14% and RT-5L - 38% over the last 4 weeks.

Less hope GWR can keep this up next week.

Don't know of any changes, but GWR were going to monitor the worst performing trains from the December timetable, and tweak things around a little bit where possible, prior to more major changes from May.  Perhaps the automatic route setting has been changed to give this train a higher priority?
