Simon Calder's Independent Travel Podcast


June 21st - How the rail strike is affecting London's train hubs

The first day of three planned rail worker strikes by the RMT union has begun and despite the doom-mongering I was pleasantly surprised when visiting London Liverpool Street and Kings Cross on how many trains were still in operation. Of course, travel has been much reduced to mainline services but if you do need to travel, I'm here to tell you that it is still possible by train during the industrial action.

However, speaking with representatives from the trade unions and others involved in the talks, I'm not as optimistic on saying this will be the last trade union action we'll be seeing on our transport network this summer.

Of course this podcast is free, as is my weekly newsletter that you can sign up for at:
