COMMUTERS from Crow Country could face misery next week if planned strike action by railway workers goes ahead.
But train operator First Capital Connect (FCC) insist it will be "business as usual", even if the planned action by members of the RMT union takes place next Monday, September 14.
The Cambridge - London King's Cross line, which passes through stations including Royston, Meldreth, and Ashwell and Morden, would be one of the routes affected.
An FCC spokesman said: "Customers should be confident it will be business as usual on Monday. We intend to run a near-normal service using fully trained and competent employees to cover for the mainly ticket office, ticket inspector and ticket gateline staff who will be on strike."
