Issue was the third loco which is used to haul the empty stock to London. It then normally returns to Reading on the down service before being detached. It is then coupled to the up service when it arrives before hauling that train back to Reading depot from Paddington.

Terminating the up service at Didcot meant it could run into the depot from the west with no reversal.

A very late (and short) arrival this morning;

21:45 Penzance to London Paddington due 05:07

13/09/21 21:45 Penzance to London Paddington due 05:07 will be diverted between Taunton and Reading and terminated at Reading.
It will no longer call at London Paddington.

It has been previously delayed, has been further delayed at Taunton and is now 188 minutes late.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

I suspect most sleeper passengers will be glad of the longer lie-in! I certainly would.

A longer lie-in, maybe, but chucked out at Reading at 06:39!

Indeed. Not the ideal preparation for a day's work in London, which is probably why most passengers would have been on the sleeper.
