Around 50,000 workers are expected to be striking over June 21, June 23 and June 25, causing chaos to commuters, people heading on holiday as well as Glastonbury ticket holders.
Train workers are striking over pay, working conditions and redundancies in what is set to be Britain's most widespread industrial action this century.
