TRAINS on the Borders Railway between Tweedbank and Edinburgh Waverley  will operate as normal tomorrow, Wednesday February 1 and Friday February 3, when members of two rail trade unions, RMT and ASLEF, take part in planned strike action. 

The planned strike action is a result of a dispute between the trade unions and a number of other train operating companies across the UK, and does not involve any ScotRail staff.

David Simpson, ScotRail Service Delivery Director, said: “No ScotRail services will be affected by this week’s upcoming strike action.

“It is disappointing to see more widespread disruption across the Great Britain at a time when the railway needs to be doing everything it can to encourage more people to travel by train.
