Splitting/Joining trains at Colchester/Witham

The NXEA May 2011 timetable was the last timetable in the region to show splitting and joining trains. All timetables after that no longer show these, which I find quite annoying. Is there any reason why they are no longer shown?

As far as I can tell, the trains shown below in blue run and split as they did in this timetable (apart from a few minutes difference here and there), and trains in red now run as separate trains as far as I can tell. I have researched this as much as I can using Timetables 2 and the 1644/1645 service now runs as two separate trains. Is this true, and if so why the change? I am sure I have seen this on the boards at Liverpool Street as to Clacton-on-Sea/Harwich Town. Any info would be greatly appreciated. If I have missed any trains, please add them.
