a friend who i was due to meet off a train today, text me to say that the train had been stuck in Camborne for almost an hour about 1330 this afternoon, no problems were showing then, but these arew showing now

these are the only 2 problems i could find, so assuming it was the broken down train one,

Quote
16:00 Penzance to London Paddington due 21:21
This train has been revised.It will call additionally at: Hayle.This is due to an earlier broken down train.

a friend who i was due to meet off a train today at penzance, text me to say that the train had been stuck in Camborne for almost an hour about 1400 this afternoon, no problems were showing then, but these are showing now. the live feed on here is showing the 1449 pz- plymouth as cancelled due to an earlier broken down train, assuming it was this train that broke down on way down to penzance,

these are the only 2 problems on fgw website, ,

1703 out of Paddington might have been rammed? (unlikely)

Think the 18:03 is making extra calls because the 10:59 Glasgow to Penzance wasn't going further than Plymouth.
