SW Trains impending strike

For those oft-embattled commuters, like me, who wend our sometimes weary way into London from our very own Worcester Park station the news that there may be another train strike next week is about as welcome as Mohamed Al Fayed at Balmoral.

What information there is on the matter is provided at the National Rail website including a highly informative and very detailed map of the services that will be available during the strike, which shows that SW Trains have decided that the best way to maintain a service to Worcester Park for the duration of the strike is not to send any trains. Nada. Zilch. None.

For those who are interested there is a timetable for those non-existent trains here but for the rest of you there's the additional news that they don't appear to be running a service that includes Wimbledon or Clapham Junction on strike days either......

Those sweet members of ASLEF might call it off at the last minute, but if they don't then I'll be on the 93 to Morden.........

When SW Trains are on strike, or landslipped into oblivion, I find it easier to get the 213 to Cheam and then onwards to London Victoria / Clapham Junction from there.

According to the map their won't be any trains from Clapham Junction, which I find somewhat incredible. I get off at a Northern Line station so Morden works well as I can get a seat :)

If it was just the Worcester Park branch out I'd go to New Malden but they're not going to have any joy either.
