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.
Check if there is any track improvement work that may affect your CrossCountry journey.
Buy tickets for any train journey in Britain. We cross more of the country than any other train company.
Network Rail is constantly maintaining and repairing railway tracks, signalling and stations. This sometimes means we have to alter our published timetables or put buses and coaches on to replace our train services.
When you plan your journey using the 'Find a train' panel above, the information you get back will take into account any changes to train times caused by track improvement work, including where rail replacement road transport is in operation.
Our weekly information provides details of any planned changes to CrossCountry services for a given week. Our monthly summary gives an at-a-glance overview of major changes for a calendar month.
