A planned strike by workers on East Coast trains - which run through Peterborough and Stevenage - has been suspended.
Union members were due to walk out on Friday in a row over job cuts, working conditions and safety.
However, Virgin Trains said the union has "returned to the table for further discussions" and welcomed the decision to suspend industrial action.
We’re pleased that the RMT has agreed to suspend industrial action and continue talks.
We had put in place detailed contingency plans which would have seen our timetable run as normal, nevertheless this news will be welcomed by our customers and people.
We’re making exciting changes on the east coast as part of the customer-centric revolution which has seen us embark on a £140m investment programme in our trains and stations.
We want a service that focuses firmly on the customer and look forward to discussing these further with representatives of the RMT.
The rail union RMT today confirmed an 84 per cent vote in favour of strike action on Virgin trains East Coast service which runs through Stevenage and Peterborough. 90 per cent voted in favour of industrial action short of a strike. The union is protesting about cuts which it says will cost nearly 200 jobs.

Scientists will soon be able to monitor the earth's forests from space thanks to a new satellite to be built at Stevenage's Airbus Defence team.
The project called 'Biomass' follows on from last week's test of its Mars Rover by astronaut Tim Peake.
The Biomass probe will provide information to climate researchers all over the world when it is launched in 2021.
It will make 3D maps of forests across the globe and measure the amount of carbon present.
It will also pick up any annual changes.
Collecting accurate data on the world's biomass is key to our understanding of the world's climate.
We are very pleased to help ESA with this mission that will provide key data for scientists and climate scientists around the world.
