Passengers warned to only travel by train if absolutely necessary on 1, 5 and 8 October amid coordinated strike action

  • With the RMT, Aslef and TSSA coordinating strike action on Saturday 1 October, only around 11% of services will operate, and in some parts of the country there will be no trains at all 
  • Train drivers at 14 operators are also walking out on Wednesday 5 October, meaning disruption for passengers on those routes 
  • The RMT is then staging another walkout on Saturday 8 October 
  • Special timetables for 1 and 5 October will be published on National Rail Enquiries next week, while the timetable for Saturday 8 October will be published early the following week (w/c 3 October) 
  • With trains starting later and finishing much earlier than usual, passengers are asked to only travel by rail if absolutely necessary. Those who must travel should expect disruption, plan ahead and check when their last train will depart.
