Another rail strike has left York Station almost deserted this morning (Wednesday).
Passengers are suffering fresh travel chaos as thousands of workers walked out in a row over jobs, pay, pensions and conditions.
Only around one in five trains were due to run on around half the network, with some areas having no trains all day.
Selby and Malton stations are both closed again today.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) at Network Rail and 14 train operators went on strike.
Passengers are being urged to only travel by train if they must, and if it is necessary, allow extra time and check when their last train will depart.
Trains are expected to be disrupted on Thursday morning with a later start to services as employees return to duties.
But another strike by members of the ASLEF union will follow on Saturday. Here’s what is happening on our train services this morning (Wednesday, 27 July):
Here are the first and last trains to York:
First train: 08:35 to Edinburgh Waverley
Last train to Edinburgh Waverley: 15:33
Last train to Newcastle: 16:39
First train: 08:02 to London King’s Cross
Last train to London: 15:57
Last train to Doncaster: 18:02
