Services will be heavily impacted on Saturday 13 August, Thursday 18 August and Saturday 20 August due to separate action by members of the ASLEF and RMT unions.

On Saturday 13 August there will no service on any LNR route due to action by members of driver union ASLEF. Passengers will not be able to travel with LNR or sister company West Midlands Railway as a result. Some early morning services on Sunday 14 August may be disrupted due to trains being in the incorrect place overnight.

Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director at LNR, said:

“It is disappointing that our customers will continue to be impacted this month due to ongoing industrial action and I am urging passengers to check their journeys in advance.

“On Saturday 13 August we will not be able to run any services at all and we are advising passengers not to travel. Passengers holding tickets purchased in advance can travel on an alternative date or receive a full refund.”

On Thursday 18 August and Saturday 20 August a limited service will be in operation between 7.30am and 6.30pm only due to industrial action by members of the RMT union.

An amended timetable will also be in operation on Friday 19 August and early morning services on Sunday 21 August may be disrupted due to the displacement of trains overnight.

Routes with a limited service on Thursday 18 August and Saturday 20 August from 7.30am to 6.30pm are:

– Northampton – London Euston – 2 trains per hour

– Birmingham – Northampton – 1 train per hour

– Birmingham – Crewe – 1 train per hour

No trains will run on any other LNR route, including London Euston-Crewe, Birmingham-Liverpool, St Albans Abbey-Watford Junction and Bedford-Bletchley. For further information visit www.lnr.uk/industrialaction
