Campaigners will be out in force at Norwich railway station showing support for the first day of a series of strikes at three major regional rail companies.
NOR4NOR (Norfolk for Nationalisation) supporters will be at the Norwich station on Friday, September 1, 4-6pm.
Workers for Southern Rail, Arriva Rail North and Merseyrail, which do not run from Norwich, are striking on September 1, 3 and 4 over driver-only train disputes.
The RMT union has asked Greater Anglia for an assurance that the company is not considering introducing further driver-only operated trains in the region.
Dave Welsh, from NOR4NOR, said: 'We are concerned that the private companies are attempting to boost their profits by removing safety critical frontline staff.'
