    MODS PLEASE MOVE (if in wrong place)

    Hello I am planning on travelling to York on the 22nd May and on the Rail Enquires website it says possible rail strike action. Does anyone know what this strike action is and when it would be confirmed and which routes it would affect?

    Thanks.

    Also it seems to cheaper to get a return from Macclesfield to Manchester and then a return from picc to York then buy a anytime from Macc to York... Am I looking at this correct.

    I'm having to travel peak in the morning, to get to York for 10 am, maybe a little earlier but def no later. In terms of coming back I should be done by 12 but will prob take advantage of looking around the Railway museum. I have looked at advanced but does not seem to be available for the 22nd May. It looks like my best option is a ticket from Macc to MAN then a day return MAN to YORK?

    Also if I pre booked my seats/tickets and the strike went ahead would I be able to get a refund on the tickets as I fear that alternative arrangements by the TOC may take longer.
    Thanks.

    Why should the mods move? Are they sitting on your spot? :)

    The National Rail Enquiries website mentions the potential for industrial action by RMT & TSSA members.

    The issue seems to be about pay. From the TSSA at

    If your train is cancelled and you choose not to travel, then you can get a full refund.
