All trains blocked between Paddington and Slough AGAIN

You may remember that a Hitachi test train recently brought down electrical wires at Hanwell blocking any train from entering Paddington and causing huge disruption.

Bad news folks, the entire line between Paddington and Slough is closed again, with disruption for at least six hours.

It’s too early to say if a test train is again responsible but they’ll be some very red faces at Hitachi if so, as well as Network Rail if incorrect wire installation is a factor.

The area has seen new wires installed in recent years for new electric trains to Bristol, Newbury and Cardiff.
