Strike action to disrupt Lincoln trains this weekend

Rail passengers are being warned that they will face disruption on the route between Lincoln and Retford due to industrial action this weekend.

Buses are replacing trains for a number of peak-time services as Northern Rail workers stage their latest walkout in a row over driver-only operated trains.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union will stage two 24-hour walk-outs on Saturday, July 8, Sunday, July 9 and Monday, July 10. Up to 60% of services could be cancelled as a result.

Revised timetabled are outlined on the National Rail website here.
