A passing HST bound for Paddington on 10 May 2012 photographed running into the up loop at Challow on the GW main line. It would appear there was a problem further east - in the time I was there all eastbound trains first stopped short of Challow and then either proceeded down the loop or headed to Didcot at 10mph. (Given it was a foul day, I gave up after 40 minutes and went home!)
