Engineering work is taking place between Slough and Reading, closing 2 of the 4 lines.

  • The 00:18 Reading to London Paddington service will not call at Taplow and Burnham
  • The 00:34 London Paddington to Reading service will not call at Burnham and Taplow.


Passengers requiring Burnham and Taplow should travel via Slough for connecting rail replacement buses.
