A RAIL union strike means there will be no ScotRail trains running between North Berwick and Edinburgh this Sunday.

The strike, by members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT), has led to all Sunday services between North Berwick and Edinburgh cancelled, and a limited Dunbar-Edinburgh Sunday service, from this weekend until further notice.

CrossCountry and LNER services to and from Dunbar will continue.

The cancellations come as the RMT escalated action by conductors to include train ticket examiners, who voted to join in the next series of stoppages.

The strike action means there will be no trains stopping at Musselburgh, Wallyford, Prestonpans, Longniddry, Drem or North Berwick on Sunday.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail head of customer operations, said: “The RMT’s strike action is wrong and will have a significant impact on customers who are returning to the railway as lockdown eases.

"At a time when we need to attract people back to the railway to recover the business and secure jobs, the RMT’s damaging actions will turn people away.”

Mick Cash, RMT general secretary, said: "Abellio bosses continue to frustrate any move to talks and are quite happy to cancel services, pocket their fees and milk the franchise dry while the‎ frontline staff are told there's no money for a fair deal."
