Residents of Scotland have been warned that rail strikes will cause widespread disruption to trains across the country by the end of February. Passengers planning to travel to Glasgow, Edinburgh and other cities are advised to be prepared for chaos and delays.

CrossCountry has announced changes to the timetable of trains running from Scotland to England. Some flights will be canceled, others will not start at the planned location, and some may end earlier than planned, the Daily Record reports.

The strike was caused by a dispute between RMT members and Hitachi Rail over wages. The strike began on February 10 and is expected to last until the end of the month.

Passengers traveling on routes from Aberdeen, Glasgow or Edinburgh to Penzance, Plymouth and other cities will be affected by the consequences of the transport chaos.

The train from Edinburgh to Plymouth, which departs at 13:30, will stop in Newcastle and will not reach its destination.

On Monday, February 12, the 12:30 train from Plymouth to Glasgow will stop earlier in Newcastle.

On Tuesday, February 13, three morning trains from Edinburgh to Penzance will depart from Newcastle. The Aberdeen to Penzance train will depart from Edinburgh at 8:20 am, and the Glasgow to Plymouth train will depart from Newcastle at 7:48 am.

Luckily for lovers, on February 14, flights will run as usual. However, the strike will resume the next day. Trains at 13:30 and 14:30 from Plymouth to Edinburgh will terminate in York.

Rail users are urged to check their routes in advance and allow more time for travel. Traffic may be unstable and subject to change.
