All ran throughout - problem was between Bramley and Southcote so most likely with the interfacing between Reading and Basingstoke New boxes.

It was due to a track circuit problem, I believe at Basingstoke

650v cable from Southcote RR faulty hence the long delay in repair.  May well have indicated in Basingstoke as a TCF (Track Circuit Failure)
