National Rail update

We just wanted to remind you of the RMT (station and on board staff) strikes taking place on Thursday (20 July), Saturday (22 July), and Saturday 29 July.

On these dates we will only be able to run a very limited service, with large parts of the network having no service whatsoever. Where services can run they will start later in the day and finish much earlier.  There is also likely to be disruption on the days following strike action too. 

More information, including the services we are running and when journey planners will be updated, is available on our dedicated webpage at

If you can update your networks that would be greatly appreciated, and if there’s anything we can do to help, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes


Thomas Lydon | Public Affairs Manager | Great Western Railway
