Train Strikes – please check before travelling

During strike days, services will be seriously disrupted, with many providers only running a skeleton service – and most are not running any trains at all. So if you are planning on cutting it fine and dashing back to your family home on Christmas Eve, it might be worth having a rethink, as services are likely to be even busier than usual before that 6pm cut-off.
It’s worth noting that trains don’t normally run on 25 or 26 December regardless of strike action (a few airport transfer services are normally in operation on Boxing Day but are unlikely to run this year). Instead, the strikes will impact engineering work on the railway itself.
Planned strike days:
13th – 14th December
16th – 17th December
6pm Christmas Eve – 6am 27th December
3rd – 4th January
6th – 7th January
