Today marks the first day of industrial action across the railway network.
The rail strikes will cause disruption across the West Midlands this week and you are advised to only travel via train this week if absolutely necessary.
Trains will run on a reduced timetable throughout the day – with no early morning or evening services.
West Midlands Railway will not be running any trains between Stourbridge and Birmingham until Saturday.
