    Industrial action to affect CrossCountry services on Sunday 25 August

    Train companies affected


    Routes affected

    Various CrossCountry routes


    The RMT union have announced that they intend to carry out industrial action on Sunday 25 August. CrossCountry will be running a significantly reduced service on many routes.

    Customers looking to travel between Yorkshire, the North East and Scotland are strongly advised to avoid travelling on Sunday. This is because of the very limited level of service available on the East Coast Main Line that day.

    Seat reservations have been suspended for Sunday 25 August.

    Alternative travel information:
    If you have purchased a ticket for Sunday 25 August marked 'XC ONLY', 'CROSS CNTRY ONLY' or 'ANY PERMITTED' and your journey is entirely with CrossCountry this will be valid to travel on an alternative CrossCountry service on Friday 23 August, Saturday 24 August, Monday 26 August and Tuesday 27 August.

    Customers may also use their tickets with the following operators via any reasonable route on Sunday 25 August:

    • Chiltern Railways
    • London Northwestern Railway
    • Northern
    • ScotRail
    • West Midlands Railway


    If you no longer wish to travel, you should contact your original ticket retailer to organise a refund.

    Check before you travel:
    A normal timetable is still showing in the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner for the strike day. Strike timetables for Sunday 25 August are available here.

    You may be entitled to compensation if you experience a delay in completing your journey today. Please keep your train ticket and make a note of your journey, as both will be required to support any claim.
