Train companies have announced a “very limited” timetable, with disruption for commuters on three days this week, due to strike action.

Network Rail has announced services will begin later and end much earlier on Wednesday, July 27.

Members of the Rail, Maritime, and Transport union will walk out for 24 hours on Wednesday in the bitter row over pay, jobs, and conditions.

A London Northwestern Railway (LNR) spokesperson said: “On Wednesday 27 July, a very limited service will be in operation due to strike action by members of the RMT union.

“Passengers are advised to only travel if essential.”

LNR has announced the first train will depart from Watford Junction to London Euston at 7.30am with the latest return service at 5.30pm.

The Northampton – Euston route will run 2 trains per hour between 7.30am to 6.30pm.

The St Albans Abbey – Watford Junction route will not run on Wednesday.

TFL have not announced closures for the Metropolitan line but advise travellers to "check before they travel".

Knock-on disruption, with trains starting later on most routes, is expected on Thursday June 28.

Further disruption is likely on Saturday July 30, when the Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen is expected to strike.
