Rail Services: Expected Disruption Next Week

Advice from West Midlands Trains: Rail services will be heavily disrupted throughout the duration of next week due to planned strike action.

Whilst strike action is currently planned for Tuesday 21st June, Thursday 23rd June, and Saturday 25th June, the knock-on impact means that we are also expecting Wednesday 22th June and Friday 24th June to be similarly disrupted.  Expect severe disruption and to plan ahead.  Further information is available on the London Northwestern website at:
