Disruption on the railways

Herald Series: Disruption on the railways Disruption on the railways

Railways in Oxfordshire will be disrupted by works next spring.

Network Rail plans to close the main line between Didcot and Twyford over the long Easter Weekend, April 4, 5 and 6, for engineering work. This is expected to disrupt First Great Western services.

The rail firm is also planning a 75-hour closure of the line from Didcot to Oxford and Heyford over the late May bank holiday, May 23, 24 and 25.

SO glad I discovered Chiltern Railways earlier this year. No longer do I have to suffer the drive to Didcot and the unreliability of Western Region (or whatever it's called these days) when I need to take the choo-choo to London.

A slightly longer drive to Haddenham & Thame Parkway, then a quiet train to Marylebone. Unlike trains from Paddington, there's no restriction on down trains back using off-peak tickets.

Next year we'll see Oxford Parkway opening. Will anyone who wants to go to London from British West Oxfordshire still bother with Western Region? I doubt it.....

Chiltern provide a fantastic service.

If I leave my house in Oxford at 07:25, drive to H&T Parkway I can be outside Marylebone by 08:28.
