Network Rail have repaired much of the damage and we are operating almost a full service this morning.  There are still some restrictions on our all electric fleet, and this could mean some changes for London and Thames Valley local services this afternoon as Network Rail work to complete the repair.

Long distance services into London Paddington from Wales, Bristol, the Cotswolds and the South West should not be affected.  We will keep our website, www.gwr.com, up to date with any new developmen

Hitachi and Network Rail continue to investigate the root cause of the incident and we wait to hear their findings.
