I thought it was now open?

Trying to get a train into London tomorrow and it's still coming up as a bus via Didcot!

Isnt Reading station undergoing works currently (electrification of tracks???)... even though Oxford (city) station reopened on Monday this week no-one can apparently go far by train from there?

plus the heatwave is causing train tracks to warp so they need replacing, rail network sure isnt running as it should

I travel in and out of London at least 5 times a week, but thought the train station was now open and running. Reading station is open, all very strange!

It reopened on Monday and was running today, but for some reason was also scheduled to close tomorrow and Sunday, then back open again next Monday. Not sure why it would open and close again but there you are.

When I was an ankle-biter I can remember my dear old mum advising me, when waiting at a train station, not to stand too close to edge of the platform when a train is due,..... as it might suck me off .... ..... cue the old Don Thomas Northern soul classic ;););) .......

Bloody shambles, I face problems travelling everyday on the tube etc but I hate it when it affects my personal time!
