French rail strikes affect cross-border connections
13 May 2018 @ 23:21

SOME trains from Barcelona to Paris will be cancelled tomorrow (Monday) due to strikes in France – but not all of them, meaning travellers should check with the rail board before making travel plans.

Whilst the 09.25 from Barcelona to the French capital, and other connections from the north-eastern city to Marseille, Toulouse and Lyon were grounded due to SNCF staff industrial action, the 13.20 to Paris left on schedule today, says Spanish rail board RENFE.

Tomorrow's Toulouse-Barcelona train will only go as far as Perpignan, whilst the Marseille-Madrid train starts at Figueres-Vilafant, already over the Spanish border.

Disruptions and cancellations have been announcd on some of the Barcelona to Lyon, Marseille and Toulouse lines, and also on the return trains back to the French cities.
