Misery continues for First Great Western passengers

Bristol's rail passengers faced delays of up to two hours today after signalling problems caused hundreds of cancellations.

Only one train an hour is currently running between Bristol and Paddington due to signalling problems at Slough. First Great Western is advising people not to travel "unless unavoidable."

"Network Rail have been on site since early this morning, replacing about a mile long stretch of cable. It means that we've only got one line out of four available and we're running a very limited train service, signal to signal."

– Jo Elliott, First Great Western

Train problems continue for London bound travellers

Problems are continuing on First Great Western services from the west country via between Reading and London Paddington due to signalling problem at Slough. Tickets being accepted on London Underground services, and via reasonable routes on other National Rail operator services.

Services are severely reduced, and delays of up to an hour are likely on trains which are able to run. Passengers are advised not to attempt to travel via this route. There's no estimate for when normal service will resume.
