Passengers should ensure they check their journey before travelling.

On October 6, an RMT strike on the London Underground network will affect services along the Metropolitan Line, meaning that Chiltern Railways services will not be able to call at stations between Harrow on the Hill and Amersham.

Engineering works will also affect some journeys prior to the industrial action taking place, with buses replacing trains on some routes in the final week of September.

Chiltern Railways is urging customers to check before they travel here, or the Chiltern Railways app.
