"None of the stations are yet finished"

Surprising word order aside, that is staggering. How could every one of
them be running late? Weren't they built by different contractors?

I was rather confused by the statement that some sections were now
operating, I assume they were referring to testing, though Paddington -
Reading wasn't included

Yes. I suspect that once the opening was delayed, they cut back on the
overtime working that would have been required for even the most complete
stations to meet the December 2018 target date. It's cheaper to complete
the stations at a more relaxed pace.

I took it to mean the existing surface sections operated by TfL Rail
labelled 345s.

Are the 345s operating services out of Paddington? The map appears to
show services between there and Slough.

Misread the map, it's Hayes and Harlington, before the Heathrow branch
diverges.
