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.
CrossCountry provided extra services to Weymouth so that people from the North could attend the sailing activities taking place.
And our participation didn't end there. On 24 August 2012 we helped transport part of the Paralympic flame between York and Sheffield where it was used to light a ceremonial cauldron. The flame was transported in a miner's Davy Lamp and accompanied on its journey by Colin Price, a previous winner of three Paralympic medals for GB Wheelchair Basketball team.« Back to press
