Industrial action during December.
Unfortunately, the RMT union has called a number of strikes for December (the next scheduled dates are Saturday 23 December, Sunday 24 December, Wednesday 27 December and Sunday 31 December.) that will significantly affect CrossCountry train services. We will be operating a reduced service but running some longer trains. Amended timetables will be confirmed nearer to each strike day, so please keep checking this page for details before using any on-line journey planners. Click here for the latest information.
Buy tickets for any train journey in Britain. We cross more of the country than any other train company.
To celebrate the great destinations served by CrossCountry services, we have redesigned the hot beverage cups in both First Class and Standard. The new cups feature a continuous line of images reflecting many famous landmarks from places on the CrossCountry network - including Oxford, York, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Plymouth.
We have also replaced many of our complimentary items on our First Class refreshments menu;
For lunch, we've introduced a new chilli con carne, made with spicy beef mince, kidney beans, red and green peppers and served on a bed of rice.
Already proving popular is a delicious new blueberry muffin, with blueberry filling and butter crumble topping.
For breakfast, we now offer a Special K Cereal Pot, providing a great healthy option containing less than 3% fat.
