Passengers planning to travel from Preston Railway Station are being advised of strike action this Saturday (29 July).

Industrial action by the RMT means there will be limited rail services running.

The 24-hour strike is impacting 14 rail operators, including Avanti West Coast who operate Preston Station.

Just one train an hour will run between London Euston and Preston and a limited service to Glasgow.

And the hours they are operating are greatly reduced compared to normal rail services.

Andy Mellors, Managing Director at Avanti West Coast, said: “We’re sorry our customers will have their journeys disrupted for another day this month because of this latest strike action. It will no doubt affect many who have made plans for this weekend, and I would like to thank our customers for their continued patience and understanding.

“We’ll be operating a reduced timetable during this strike, so our customers should plan their journeys, check before they travel and be aware of their last train home.

“Any customers with tickets dated 29 July can make their journey on alternative days or claim a full refund.”

The Avanti website has details on timings of services and how to claim refunds.

Transpennine Express is also affected with just five services operating between Preston and Manchester Airport on the day. You can see details on the timings on the Transpennine Express website.
