Southern Rail’s suspended services are back in business – but strikes are still to come

Southern Rail travellers will see some respite this week after the much-maligned reduced timetable officially ended.

The 341 routes which were cut due to a temporary schedule are back in business. However, the newly-reintroduced services were hit by a fresh wave of technical glitches.

And there are still more strikes to come.

The next one will take place on Bonfire Night, kicking off in the early hours of Friday and lasting for 48 hours.

Further strikes are set to occur on the 22nd/23rd November and then on the 6th-8th December.

The industrial dispute centres on safety and the role of guards on the trains.
