    Didcot has said that shuttles, using the railmotor, along the Brentford branch on October 18 and 19 are looking "pretty certain" and that it just has to "tie up the lose ends" .

    Maybe something to do with the portable GSM-R kit the Didcot bods have developed and have had accepted by the RSSB.

    A joint statement is being put together by FGW and Didcot and will be released in due course once the wording has been agreed.

    Awaiting derogation from the ORR " to allow us to operate on the branch" according the latest GW Echo.

    Mentions in the Mainline Report " there are future plans to operate the SRM on other lines within the old GW territory".
