    Strike action has been announced by the ASLEF Union on the following days:

    • Saturday 30 September

    In addition, they have also announced an overtime ban across the UK rail network on Friday 29 September and from Monday 2 to Friday 6 October.

    On the days where full strike action is taking place this is likely to result in little or no services across large areas of the network. Services are also likely to be disrupted and start later on the day immediately following a full strike day. Passengers are warned to expect significant disruption and advised to plan ahead and check before you travel.
