If I am reading it correctly, the Saturday Reading to Basingstoke service is still one an hour. Unfortunately the "wrong" half and a 50 minute wait at Basingstoke for the service(s) I use does not add to the attractions of a trip. So no improvement there.

The reversion to three tph Slough to Windsor will be an encouragement for cycling to and round Windsor area.

Another one I have just come across this evening.

2C93 (2100 Cardiff Central - Exeter St. Davids, due 2329), which leaves Bristol Temple Meads at 2153, is split into two separate workings starting 13th December which will be:

2C93 (2100 Cardiff Central - Bristol Temple Meads, due 2150)
2C99 (2200 Bristol Temple Meads  - Exeter St. Davids, due 2350)

Interesting that 2C99 is scheduled to take 21 minutes longer for the Bristol Temple Meads to Exeter St. Davids trip when you consider that it will leave Bristol Temple Meads only 7 minutes later than 2C93 does at present. From what I can tell there will be an ECS (Empty Coaching Stock) from Warminster which is scheduled to arrive in Platform 8 at Bristol Temple Meads at 2051 and then form 2C99.

It looks like the peak hour semi fasts from PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains) to MAI (Maidenhead station) are being transferred from GWR (Great Western Railway) to TfL» (Transport for London - about). An example is 1N44 from PAD at 1727 which will become 9N51 with additional stops at EAL (Ealing Broadway Station) and WDT:

Makes sense.  Will these develop into trains through the Crossrail tunnels when yhe eventually open?  Or is it a temporary move as TfL» (Transport for London - about) have loads of spare trains and crew?

The plans for the final service we were looking at in 2018 (when they were meant to have happened long before now, of course) did include two of these so-called "semi-fast" trains per hour in the peaks.  So there is no reason to think they will vanish.

I've never though they were more than quarter-fast - 50 minutes PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains)<>RDG(resolve), and always on the Relief Lines. But one thing the new trains do is give a slightly quicker option for off-peak ticket holders out of London in the evenings.

What never was clear is whether the number of GWR (Great Western Railway)'s proper semi-fasts would be reduced. I don't think we know that even now.

Confirmation that many of the services are returning from December.  One question…where are the trains and crew for them?
