Malvern Editorial 18th Nov, 2022   0

ANOTHER round of rail strikes gets under way tomorrow (Saturday, November 19) and a service going to and from Malvern will be among those affected.

GWR have issued a warning to passengers not to get caught out by the latest industrial action which takes place across the country and also on Monday and next Saturday, November 21 and 26.

On these days train services on many parts of the GWR network will be disrupted. Trains on the days following the industrial action may also be disrupted.

Among them will be the train from Bristol Temple Meads to Gloucester/Worcester/Great Malvern.




After 6.30pm tomorrow and Monday, trains will only operate north of Gloucester towards Worcester.

There will be no trains serving this stretch of the route next Saturday.


In the affected areas, where GWR can run services, they are expected to be extremely busy.

Online journey planners are being updated with the latest timetable information as soon as is possible.

People can check their journeys here.
