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.
In making their decision judges at transport magazine New Transit said "We felt that the impression of the train powering through the snow at a time when transport in many parts of the country was at a standstill conveyed the strength of the rail network. And of course the picture captured perfectly the glorious surroundings that can make travelling by train a real joy."« Back to press
