Rail workers walk out on strike for second time this week
Rotherham Central railway station

RAIL passengers face a second day of disruption this week as workers walk out on strike.

Rail services will only run between 7am and 7pm today (Thursday) as members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union walk out on strike in a dispute over driver-only operated trains.

Services from Rotherham Central to Meadowhall and Sheffield and to Doncaster and Hull are among those affected.
