No trains will run through Harrogate and Knaresborough today as a national strike gets underway.
Harrogate station was deserted this morning with no picketers outside. However, the ticket office was still manned.
The RMT union has called the strike, which is also scheduled for Thursday and Saturday, over pay and conditions.
Thousands of drivers, signal operators and guards will walk out, crippling services.
The train operator is currently expecting to run limited services on Saturday, although the company has warned of disruption and urged people to seek alternative travel.
LNER will also be running no services to London King’s Cross from Harrogate on all three strike days.

The company is advising passengers not to travel on trains on any day between Tuesday and Sunday.
