Oxford-London railway to be electrified

More improvements - but also more disruption - to the Charlbury-London railway service can be expected with the announcement that the Great Western Main Line as far as Oxford is to be electrified.

The work will take place between now and 2017. Weekend travel will be severely disrupted but most weekday travel should be unaffected.

The scheme is likely to mean new trains for the Cotswold Line. A new 'Super Express' train, replacing the current High Speed Trains, will be capable of using electric power as far as Oxford then a diesel engine on the Cotswold section.
