Please only travel if absolutely necessary during this period.

If you have to travel, please check your train times as close to your journey as possible.

We are sorry for the disruption this will cause.

STRIKE DAY SERVICES – Saturday 8 October

  • A severely reduced service will run between 07:15 and 18:30 on some routes, with the rest of the network closed – see the table and map below
  • Engineering work is also taking place reducing the network available for SWR to run its services compared to previous strike days. As a result, SWR's services to Southampton will not be running and services towards Windsor will only run as far as Hounslow
  • Where trains are running, they are expected to be very busy
  • Journey planners will be updated 2-4 days in advance of the strike day

We will run the usual timetable, but due to the impact of the industrial action and the challenges of getting trains and people in the right place to operate after strike days:

  • First trains will start much later than usual
  • First trains will be much busier than usual
  • If you must travel, please check your entire journey carefully before arriving at the station 

Please only travel if absolutely necessary throughout this strike action.
