Chiltern Railways asks customers to only travel if essential on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July

Chiltern Railways has asked customers to only travel if essential on Saturday 30th July and Sunday 31st July.

Services are expected to be exceptionally busy as a result of major sporting events, and industrial action impacting other train companies. In addition, some services may be cancelled at short notice due to shortages of Chiltern train crew. Queuing systems will be in place at major stations, and passengers who are travelling with us may not be able to take their first choice of train due to overcrowding and wider disruption.

Customers are urged to seek alternative modes of transport and to only travel with Chiltern Railways if essential.
