Delays between Par and Plymouth?  Not directly listed by journeycheck in line updates or train cancellations.
BUT.  Several runs listed as running late due to a signalling problem in other train service updates.
A few short runs; crews also late for branch line turns.

And again.
Delays to services between St Austell and Par
Due to theft of signalling cables between St Austell and Par trains have to run at reduced speed on the line towards Plymouth.
Train services running through these stations may be delayed by up to 20 minutes. Disruption is expected until 11:00 08/04.

Looks like a pretty active gang is operating down in Cornwall. This must be the 4th incident in less than a month.

Helps to fill in the time between tarmacing driveways.

Slight disruption perhaps -
12:45 Truro to Falmouth Docks due 13:09
12:45 Truro to Falmouth Docks due 13:09 has been cancelled.
This is due to lightning damaging the signalling system.

(Return run also cancelled)

Delays between Plymouth and Par with a signaller being taken ill.
A few trains cancelled, or terminated short.
Local radio reporting a relief signaller is on 'his' way.

Guessing a box would be switched out so why the cancellations I wonder.

Running now further disrupted.
09:05 Plymouth to Newquay due 10:49
09:05 Plymouth to Newquay due 10:49 will be started from Par.
It will no longer call at Plymouth, Saltash, St Germans, Liskeard and Bodmin Parkway.
This is due to a person hit by a train earlier.
