Train strike in France has started; travel disruption expected

The open-ended rail strike in France has begun. The national railroad company (SCNF) has advised that only 60% of high-speed trains and between a third and a half of other services are expected to run. High-speed services to the UK and Germany (Eurostar and Alleo) are said to be normal but just 40% of Ellipsos services to Spain and a third of SVI services to Italy are expected to run.
