Rail strike 22/23 November: only GWR services at Reigate

The latest RMT conductor strike on Southern is a two-day affair, running Tuesday 22 – Wednesday 23 November.

As in the previous stoppages, it’ll be a case of GWR trains only at Reigate, with rail journeys north or south needing a change en route at Dorking or Redhill.

At Redhill, a Southern strike advice page sets out route maps of what’s running, and at Redhill it’s a “reduced service, trains expected to be very busy”.

The page also has timetables for each day incorporating both Thameslink as well as the reduced Southern services.  Information is given on alternate routes and compensation.

Earlswood and Salfords stations are listed as closed, but this time around there will be an hourly service between Redhill and Tonbridge from “approximately 06:30 to 18:30”.

Southern also has a live running page.

The strike is part of a long-running dispute over the role of conductors on trains and a scheme, beginning to be implemented, where the driver instead operates the doors. The RMT says it’s not safe, while the company says it is.

The current list of scheduled strikes is now:

  • Tuesday 22  – Wednesday 23 November
  • Tuesday 6 – Thursday 8 December
  • Thursday 22 – Saturday 24 December
  • Saturday 31 – Monday 2 January 2017
