    Which rail services are still running during June train strike as RMT walks out

    The RMT train strike is almost upon us, as the nation braces for a tough week of chaos.

    Disruption is expected to be widespread, with people having to rethink their travel plans entirely.

    In the southwest, people hoping to ride rail lines to Glastonbury festival have been left scrabbling to find lifts in cars and even bicycles to avoid the anticipated picket.

    In total, 13 rail operators are planning to participate in the walkout, along with staff from some parts of Network Rail.

    As a result, all operators are expected to be affected by the strikes, including in the days between the official strike dates on Tuesday June 21, Thursday 23 and Saturday 25.

    The London Underground is also expected to be affected on June 21 as members of the RMT and Unite unions walk out over a variety of issues from pay rises to job cuts.
