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.

We have a very limited amount of space on our trains to store luggage, here is some advice on how to make your journey with us as smooth as possible. Remember, you need to be able to carry your luggage and lift it on and off the train.
We strongly recommend that you bring one item of luggage, which measures a maximum of 90cm by 70cm by 30cm, because of the limited amount of storage space on board our trains. A handbag, small rucksack or satchel bag can be stored under the seat in front of you or on your lap. Soft bags and small cases are easier to store and will be more secure in the overhead racks.
Any luggage in excess of this may be subject to an additional charge on board our services, in line with the National Rail Conditions of Travel.
Please ask permission from the Train Manager before boarding with large items of luggage. Large items of luggage, such as skis, can only be taken on board if they are able to be safely stored in the luggage area and if this has been agreed with the Train Manager. However, surfboards and snowboards cannot be taken on board our services.
All of our trains have storage available:
Handbags and small shopping bags are suitable to store under a seat.
Rucksacks and hand luggage can find adequate space in the overhead racks.
Larger suitcases and large rucksacks can be stored in the carriage luggage area.
Our Voyager trains have a dedicated luggage area in Coach D for easy storage of larger bags.
If you are travelling far with a large amount of luggage, Coach D is the place to be
