There were also delays yesterday afternoon on FGW and CrossCountry services between Oxford and Banbury because of a problem with equipment at Heyford.

Megs, plenty of people do need to go where HS2 will go, and with Old Oak Common 45 min away, it will be there when you need it.

The signalling problems are not FGW's area as FGW don't operate the track or signalling. This is NR's responsibility and signalling problems in the Reading/Maidenhead/S
lough area seem to be getting more and more frequent. What is the problem here? Is it the electrification works?
