Rail timetable alterations are set to continue today as the hot weather continues to affect services.
Great Western Railway said heat speed restrictions imposed by Network Rail will continue to have an impact following a number of delays and cancellations yesterday.
The restrictions, compounded by an obstruction on the line, led to long delays and crowded trains on the hottest day of the year so far. The Advertiser also received complaints of trains being sent straight to Reading without stopping at Maidenhead.
A spokesman for GWR said: “Due to a heat speed restrictions imposed on the Up Main at Stockley High Speed Services were unable to call at intermediate stations, and alterations to our usual service had to be made.

“London suburban stopping services continue to operate as normal.”
The following changes have been confirmed:
