I wonder if this will mean fewer units in operation too?
Suggestion elsewhere was that they'd be using both platforms at Heathrow now so the extra dwell time would 'migrate' from one end of the line to the other so may not make so much difference ... but yes on the service recovery at Paddington ( where problems most likely to arise) it will be constrained I guess
