Train tickets

Train bosses have confirmed that only a limited number of services will operate to and from Lichfield during rail strikes week.

Members of the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers will walk out on 21st, 23rd and 25th June.

West Midlands Railway has confirmed that two trains an hour will run on the Cross City Line between 7.30am and 6.30pm, while London Northwestern Railway says no services will stop at Lichfield Trent Valley on the West Coast Main Line on any of the days.

Passengers are also facing disruption on 22nd and 24th June, with first trains not departing until 7.30am and last trains leaving earlier than usual.

But services on 22nd and 24th June are also facing disruption, with first trains starting later and last trains departing earlier on both days.

Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for London Northwestern Railway and West Midlands Railway, said:

“It is very disappointing that this planned strike action by the RMT is set to cause significant disruption to our passengers. 

“We will be operating a very limited service all through the week and we are asking customers to only travel with us if their journey is essential and no other transport option is available to them.

“Passengers holding tickets or season tickets will be entitled to refunds and should visit our website for information.”
