Employees of Northern Rail (a.k.a. Arriva Rail North) are planning to continue to hold weekly 24-hour strikes every Saturday through December 29 (i.e. November 10, 17, 24 and December 1, 8, 15, 22, 29), as part of a long-standing dispute. The rail company has announced that it will only run approximately 30 percent of services on November 10, with disruptions particularly severe before 09:00 and after 18:00 (local time). Rail operations will be fully suspended on certain lines. Similar disruptions are to be anticipated on subsequent strike days.
Northern Rail serves destinations in northern England and southern Scotland.
Travelers are advised to confirm rail timetables and allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
