RTT» (Real Time Trains - website) is reporting it arriving at Great Malvern 57 late, and being cancelled after that.

JourneyCheck reports
Quote
13:18 Hereford to London Paddington due 16:22 will be started from Great Malvern.
It will no longer call at Hereford, Ledbury and Colwall.
This is due to a fault on this train.

And during the evening of Wednesday November 15:

The 'halts' train (17:04 Didcot - Moreton) was cancelled from Oxford (RTT» (Real Time Trains - website): "due to a problem with the traction equipment (MD)").

The 16:58 Paddington - Great Malvern lost time as a result of doing all the extra stops, arrived at Shrub Hill 33 late and was cancelled thereafter.

The 17:34 London Paddington to Hereford missed its path through the single line at Evesham. It left there 30 late and reached Hereford 26 late.

The 19:05 Great Malvern to London Paddington was held at Charlbury and arrived at Oxford 18 late.

An odd pair today:

16:58 London Paddington to Great Malvern due 19:26 will be terminated at Worcester Shrub Hill.
It will no longer call at Worcester Foregate Street, Malvern Link and Great Malvern.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

19:45 Great Malvern to London Paddington due 22:24 will be terminated at Worcester Shrub Hill.
It will no longer call at Worcestershire Parkway Hl, Pershore, Evesham, Honeybourne, Moreton-In-Marsh, Kingham, Charlbury, Hanborough, Oxford, Reading and London Paddington.
This is due to a shortage of train crew.

The second of those feels wrong - surely it should be started from Shrub Hill?

Awkward as that's the last train of the day. There *is* a connection that leave two minutes earllier, but that's change Newport and Hereford, with a wait of over 90 minutes at Newport and over three hours at Hereford, giving an arrival next day at Worcester at after 6am. *Blinks*

There is a 22:51 from Paddington, but it only goes to Worcestershire Parkway, so you'd need to have a taxi to take you to our destination.

Worcestershire Parkway... is that a rather odd final call for it?

(Edit: removed bad info.)

Off topic, but I'm now moved, for reasons of history and anecdote, to look out the last arrival into Shrub Hill on a Sunday...

Shrub Hill is staffed by WMR and is closed and locked up before that train would arrive, so it terminates at Parkway and runs empty (and straight into) the sidings at Worcester.

So, not ideal…but there is a reason for it.

Ah. Now wondering what that service did before Parkway opened in 2020, if anyone can recall.
