The British Transport Police and Network Rail are strongly advising people not to travel today unless their journey is absolutely necessary.
Network Rail have also announced that there will be further strike action on Saturday, meaning more disruption for football fans, revellers and Christmas shoppers in the Midlands.
RMT strike action is planned for every Saturday between November 16 and December 28, meaning that other operators' trains are expected to be much busier.
Network Rail advise passengers to:
- Plan your journey
- Check before you travel at www.nationalrail.co.uk
- Know the times of your trains home
Extra staff will be on hand at Birmingham New Street station on Saturday to help passengers safely make their journeys to and from the station.
