ScotRail: A service affected by the RMT strike action

The two unions are in dispute with several railway operators, but have already reached an agreement with the state operator.

This weekend, members of the RMT will be on strike, meaning Avanti West Coast will not be offering services between Edinburgh Waverley and London Euston, with “restricted” services to and from Glasgow Central.

The train drivers’ union ASLEF has imposed an overtime ban from July 31, which is expected to affect traffic on the same two routes.

The unions are not in dispute with ScotRail and therefore all but one of the routes will remain unaffected.


However, a small number of ScotRail services between Glasgow Central / Dumfries and Carlisle will be affected by the RMT strike action as train dispatching is carried out by other train operators at Carlisle station.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail’s Head of Customer Operations, said: “The dispute between unions and other rail operators does not affect ScotRail staff, which means we are able to offer our services as usual during the recent industrial action.”

“A small number of ScotRail services to and from Carlisle will experience disruption due to the planned RMT strike action. Customers traveling on this route should therefore check their train times before heading to the station.

“We also encourage all travelers to plan their journey in advance as we expect our trains to be busier than normal due to other operators’ customers traveling with ScotRail.”
