    Looks like they have lost the Reading pick-up for this trip.

    Might be because of this : -

    Engineering work is taking place between Didcot Parkway and Oxford after 23:00 on Saturday and Sunday, between Reading and Oxford until 09:05 on Sunday and also between Hayes & Harlington and Reading and between Slough and Reading all day on Sunday with various line closures.

    On Saturday, the 23:33 London Paddington to Oxford service will be replaced by a bus between Didcot Parkway and Oxford.

    Until 09:05 on Sunday, buses will replace trains between Reading, Didcot Parkway and Oxford and after 23:00 buses will replace trains between Didcot Parkway and Oxford.

    All day on Sunday, most trains will run to an amended timetable departing / arriving at London Paddington up to 10 minutes earlier / later than the normal timetable.

    Sorry Ralph, as a mod you should hold your head in shame in dictating how this gentleman can lead his life. As an ex mod, can I tell you off for writing that?

    You want to join the comedians, must of missed this stupid post earlier.
    Likewise your remark in the Cotswold trip thread after I posted some genuine info on there about the loco change.

    If I wrote what I really think, I would be probably be chucked straight off here.

    Gentlemen, please rein in the innuendo's/insults/mud slinging/barbed comments, it does nobody any good!

    Now I've seen the timings for this trip, I'm tempted to go out and see it, as its not a silly o clock start off the blocks, may even go out for the return as well depending on the evening skies.......

    For outbound, I'd go in between, Oxford & Moreton Marsh, will be a fast section and all uphill. Return trip, Campden Bank, is your best bet.

    For goodness sake. Read between the lines and do not take posts so seriously. It is all good fun banter. This forum would be dead and dull without the likes of Buseng. What I like about him is that he speaks his mind with a bit of controversy thrown in. PERFECT

    All well and good, but anyone who cares to hand it out should be prepared to receive some too.

    Whatever, I haven't posted here all day & yet people still have to ramble on. Like a dog with a bone. If I charged every time my name was brought up on here I would be a millionaire & wouldn't need to do the Lottery.

    I certainly can't disagree with that sentiment. Well said Sir!

    Lovely shots. It looks as though Mayflower is up to its load limit of 10 today. I really do hope that SD and the RTC stick rigidly to load limits in future and if that pushes the price up a bit then so be it, imo.
