Standing on a picket line at London Euston station, the railway workers held placards as they protested the distressing situation.

RMT official Mick Lynch said that it's a six day strike has become a talking point nationally.

"Once we land into an agreement with the company our members can get back to work on a regular basis and run the railway for the people," Lynch asserted

The strike is expected to intensify next week with trains, bus and subway network workers' participation.
