and live on Freeview channel 276
ASLEF represents train drivers and therefore EMR will be unable to operate any trains during these days. Strike action will also affect other train services across the country.
In addition, the ASLEF union have announced an overtime ban from Monday, October 2 to Friday, October 6. This could result in a number of late notice train cancellations - with some as late as 22:00 the day before customers travel. During this period, customers are strongly advised to regularly check if their train is running before setting off.
Customers who have purchased an Advance, Off-Peak, or Super-off-Peak ticket for Wednesday can use them on the day before the date on the ticket or up to and including Friday, October 6.
Customers are advised to check the EMR website, information in stations and social media for the latest advice and information.
Will Rogers, Managing Director at East Midlands Railway, said: "As a result of strike action being taken by members of the ASLEF union we are not able to run any trains on Wednesday, October 4, and therefore customers should not attempt to travel.
"From Monday, October 2 to Friday, October 6, services could be cancelled as late as 22:00 the day before - this is because of an overtime ban strike by ASLEF members.
"Due to this, we strongly advise customers to check if their train is running before setting off.
