Chiltern warns strike action will put “significant pressure” on its network

Train operator Chiltern Railways has warned customers that due to strike action on other operators, services will be extremely busy on Saturday 13 August.  

Queuing systems may be in place, and it may take longer to board services. 

This warning comes ahead of strike action at Arriva Rail London (London Overground), Avanti West Coast, CrossCountry, Greater Anglia, Great Western, Hull Trains, LNER, Southeastern and West Midlands Trains.  


Due to the extensive nature of the strike action at other operators, it is expected that significant pressure will be placed upon the Chiltern Railways network. 

Customers are advised to prepare for busier journeys, and check their entire journey before they travel at http://www.chilternrailways.co.uk or the Chiltern Railways app. 

Customers can check the latest travel advice for scheduled strike days at http://www.chilternrailways.co.uk/strike. Further travel guidance on strike action on the 18th and 20th August will be released in due course. Chiltern Railways is an affected operator on these dates and will be running a heavily reduced timetable.
