Rail workers from 14 railway companies will go on strike again next month in a long-running dispute over wages, jobs and working conditions.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Union (RMT) will disembark on November 3rd and 5th.
The action coincides with strikes on the same days by RMT members on Network Rail, London Underground and London Overground.
The strikes will result in widespread service disruptions across the country after a summer of strikes in the deadlock.

The union said Rail Delivery Group had not made an offer despite repeated negotiations.
RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “Throughout this dispute, the Rail Delivery Group has been totally unreasonable in failing to offer our members an agreement on pay, conditions and job security.
“Some of our rail company members are some of the lowest paid on the railroad.
“This is in stark contrast to railroad bosses making millions in profits.
“We remain open to meaningful discussions, but we remain steadfast in our industrial campaign to reach a negotiated settlement for all of our members in this dispute.”
