Advice for rail users affected by RMT action: 27 September until 1 October
The RMT Union has announced further industrial action that would affect CrossCountry services from the start of Friday 27 September until the end of Tuesday 1 October. We remain in discussions with the RMT to seek a resolution and customers are advised to check our website for the latest travel information.
If this action goes ahead then on most days there would be little impact on our services. However, services on Sunday 29 September would be severely restricted. Seat reservations have been suspended and alternative arrangements are being prepared and will be made available here when finalised.
