CrossCountry Trains - RMT Strike - 9 & 10 December 17

08 Dec 2017

Possible strike action by the RMT union for Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December

Unfortunately, the RMT union has called a strike for Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 December that will significantly affect CrossCountry train services.

CrossCountry will be operating a reduced service but using some longer trains. Amended train plans will be confirmed this week, so please keep checking the CrossCountry website for details. If you have clients travelling on either of these days on a CrossCountry service, please advise them to travel as early as possible. Some services may finish earlier than normal, and some stations may have no CrossCountry services, although alternative travel arrangements have been prepared. With fewer trains available we expect all services, and any replacement bus services, to be very busy.
