South Western Railway strike: 27-day walk out begins

Southampton_Central_-_SWR_158887_Salisbury_service.JPG?profile=RESIZE_710xCommuters are facing disruption as workers on South Western Railway (SWR) begin a 27-day strike.

It comes after talks between the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union and SWR over a long-running dispute over guards on trains broke down.

The operator called the action "unnecessary". It said "more than half" of weekday trains will run and warned of queues at stations.
