There will be significant disruption for anybody hoping to travel by train tomorrow and Saturday.  

South Western Railway (SWR) last week confirmed strike action will take place on both days, with no trains operating from Haslemere station on either day. 

SWR have advised customers to travel only if absolutely necessary.

Stuart Meek, South Western Railway’s chief operating officer, said: “This is the first time our network has been subject to full strike action by members of the ASLEF Union and, as a result, we are able to offer only an extremely limited service tomorrow.

“Tomorrow will be different to previous days of strike action with a lot fewer trains running and with the majority of the network closed. 

“A significantly-reduced service will operate the following day, Saturday, September 2, with more lines open but with large parts of the network still closed. 

“If customers must travel on either day, they should check their entire journey before travelling, with other operators also impacted by strike action. 

“We’re really sorry for the disruption.”
