Rail campaigners will protest against cost-cutting on the railways today to mark the 50th anniversary of the Beeching Report.
Unions are concerned that recent cuts outlined in a Whitehall-commissioned report by Sir Roy McNulty, often seen as a "Beeching mark two", will impact on rail safety.
Today the Unions will take part in a TUC Action for Rail campaign event by holding protests at 35 stations nationwide.
The TUC fears cost cutting could, over the next six years, lead to:
- More than 20,000 railway jobs put at risk
- The closure of 675 ticket offices
- A 50% increase in the number of unstaffed stations
