The planned strike by Aslef members on Saturday, July 30, should not directly affect EMR services, which should run as normal.

However, EMR warned that neighbouring train operators who are affected by strike action will be running a significantly reduced service.On it’s website, EMR said: “There are also a number of large events taking place across the country (on Saturday) and therefore we expect EMR services to be extremely busy on the day – boarding control may be in place at some stations.

"You should only travel if necessary and if you do decide to travel, please leave extra time for your journey and plan ahead, especially if you have connecting trains with other operators.”
