There will be no trains running on the Durham coast line on strike days, but Grand Central will be operating a reduced service between Eaglescliffe and Kings Cross for which details can be found here.

The Tees Valley Combined Authority has released pictures of how Hartlepool station will look after its £12 million upgrade to bring the third platform back into use and adding a new footbridge and lifts.
