Trains from Exmouth to Exeter St Davids will be affected by two days of industrial strike action next week. 

Rail strikes will take place next week on Wednesday, February 1 and Friday, February 3, and Great Western Railway (GWR) is reminding those looking to travel to check their journey beforehand.

The Aslef union, which represents train drivers, is taking action that will affect rail services on the two strike days, and a revised timetable will operate across several train operators, including GWR. On strike days (1 and 3) only a reduced service will operate on a limited number of routes.

A limited service, starting later and finishing earlier (between 7.30am and approximately 7.30pm) will run only on the route from Exeter St Davids and Exmouth

GWR is instisting customers check before travelling. Trains that are operating will be busier than usual because we will not be able to offer the normal service frequency.

Transport for London and Transport for Wales services are not affected by strike action and will continue to run as planned.

Unlike previous strikes, the days in between strike days and immediately after the last strike day will be largely unaffected and GWR expects to be able to operate a full level of service, with some very minor alterations.

Online journey planners have been updated with the latest timetable information, please see the passenger information table for details.

Customers who have already purchased tickets for strike days can claim a full refund or amend their ticket; those who travel and are delayed may be entitled to Delay Repay compensation if they are delayed by 15 minutes or more.

To help customers, tickets will be valid for travel on alternative days from 1 and 3 February can be used the day before, or up to and including Tuesday 7 February.

Season-ticket holders can apply for compensation through the Delay Repay scheme.

Their refund policy remains in place. If you hold a return ticket, you can claim a refund of your unused full fare, even if only one leg of your journey is affected.
