I see from a link of the GWR (Great Western Railway) website here:

 https://www.gwr.com/travel-information/train-times

that several trains are cancelled or terminated early from now "until further notice", including the 11.50 PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains) to WOP that was handy if you wanted to go to a show in London. Anyone got any idea if this is likely to be permanent?

The 22:50 PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains)-WOP (is that the one you meant?) is least likely to return IMHO (in my humble opinion) as it was a very recent addition to the timetable - 21:48 used to be the last train down the North Cotswold Line from Paddington for many, many years, until a later service operated to Moreton-In-Marsh on Fridays only (from 2027ish?).

I doubt you’ll find out anything for sure…probably just a commitment that everything will be kept under review going forward.

Would be useful to have back on a Fri/Sat night, the rest of the week I’m not so sure.

Thanks for the input. My reading of the 22.50 PAD» (Paddington (London) - next trains)-WOF was that past Oxford it was essentially an empty stock move to get the set to where it needed to be for the next day. Interesting, on a Saturday night - when the need for it is more logical -  it didn't run.

Shame if they don't bring it back - for a short space of time it was nice not to have to drive to Banbury or LMS (London Midland Scottish - 1923 to 1948) to pick up the Chiltern line.

Yes indeed.  Some of the Covid related cancellations, necessary at the time, seem to be slowly turning into semi-permanant and possibly permanent cancellations as some people feared.

The new GWR (Great Western Railway) PDFs suggest that the full service is being restored from the May timetable change, including the 22.50 from Paddington, as well as the 04.49 and 22.00 from Hereford. Good news if so.

Good news.  Slightly surprising given other operators and routes are still way off resumption of a normal timetable.
