Strike action affecting EMR services in December and January including over the holiday period

Due to industrial action taking place tomorrow, the service is closing down earlier than usual this evening.

The last Northbound trains out of London tonight 22 December will be:

19:32 London St Pancras to Sheffield
19:35 London St Pancras to Nottingham

There is extensive strike action by the RMT, UNITE the Union, TSSA and ASLEF affecting EMR services in December and January including over the holiday period.

If you are planning to travel during this time it is important to check your journey as we will be operating a significantly reduced service on strike days. Only travel by rail if absolutely necessary and if you do travel, expect severe disruption. We also advise you to check the day after strike action as there will be a later start-up.
