Trains: Another day of delays between Slough and London

Staff reporter

There will be more significant disruption affecting First Great Western services between Slough and London Paddington today.

A fire near Paddington yesterday caused damage to line side equipment in the Hayes area which meant only two of the four railway lines being available for use.

First Great Western is operating a significantly reduced service between Reading and London Paddington which it predicts will last until at least noon.

Today's disruption comes after a day of cancellations and delays yesterday.

It has suggested alternative options to travel to the capital:

  • South West Trains Services between Reading and London Waterloo
  • Transport For London Buses in the Outer London Area
  • London Underground Services from Ealing Broadway
  • Virgin Trains/Cross Country Services to London Euston
  • Chiltern Services via Banbury to Marylebone
