Rail users are facing more disruption this morning as the second day of strike action this week gets underway.
RMT members on Merseyrail and Northern Rail are walking out in a dispiute over the role of guards on trains.
Merseyrail say they want dialogue with the union and Northern say they'll aim to maintain services.
We are doing everything we can to keep our customers on the move during the three days of industrial action affecting our network.
We are still working to determine the exact services we will be able to operate, but those trains that do run will be on an amended timetable and are likely to be extremely busy.
In the past customers have responded well by planning ahead and in many cases making changes to their usual journey when necessary. We are confident that by continuing to plan ahead, our customers, both local and from further afield, will be able to go about their business, whether they choose to travel by rail, bus, ferry or car
