Rail strikes: no Chiltern Railways services on 1 and 5 October

Train operator Chiltern Railways has warned customers that on Saturday 1 October (RMT and ASLEF strike) and Wednesday 5 October (ASLEF strike), there will be no Chiltern Railways service on any route.

For other national train services on 1 October and 5 October, there will be very limited services across the UK, with no services in some places.

On Sunday 2 October, trains will start later than usual (from approximately 9am-10am) due to the displacement of trains. Customers should check their first train if they are travelling on Sunday 2 October.

Due to planned engineering works, Oxford station is closed on Sunday 2 October, with rail replacement bus services between Oxford and Oxford Parkway in operation for onward services to London Marylebone.

There should not be an impact to services on Thursday 6 October, but trains may be busier than usual.

If customers have booked a ticket for 1 October, it is valid for travel on the 30 September – Tuesday 4 October inclusive. If customers have booked a ticket for the 5 October, it is valid for travel on the 4 October – Friday 7 October inclusive.

Chiltern expects to operate a significantly reduced timetable on Saturday 8 October (RMT strike) with further information to be confirmed in due course.
