Chiltern Railways updates customers after RMT strike suspension

Train operator Chiltern Railways has warned customers that a very limited service will be available on Saturday 5 and Monday 7 November.  The planned timetable for these days remains the same, and as such, customers should only travel if absolutely essential. 

Work is ongoing to restore services on Wednesday 9 November, and the outcome of this will be communicated to customers in due course. In the coming days, customers are urged to triple-check their journey before they travel on the Chiltern Railways website or app.
