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.
