Same deal today. Large numbers of cancellations in thames valley services.

The National Rail web site over the last day or three consistently shows a good service on GWR (Great Western Railway) at a time that GWR consistently states that signalling centre operations are disrupted (could it be argued that signalling centre operations being disrupted should be a 'never event', and was it the likes of Ian Prossor who, not so long ago, were twitchy about signalling centres having created a single point of failure).

GWR's tweet earlier today:

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
