As you can see in the picture above at least one screen was working, however only showing "Welcome to Paddington Station, This station is owned and managed by Network Rail" due to the total failure of the system our control at Paddington couldn't change it.

Also shown in the picture briefly in the bottom right, is information boards which colleagues in Network Rail had printed out with all train departures, and were manually adding Platform numbers as they were being announced. Well done to Network Rail for doing this.
