    RAILWAY engineers and maintenance workers battled yesterday to repair tracks hit by collapses, landslides and flooding as more storms battered northern England and Scotland.

    Services on at least six networks — Cross Country, Caledonian Sleeper, TransPennine, ScotRail, Virgin and East Coast — have been affected by the storms.

    Rail union RMT called for an end to cuts, job losses and planned privatisation of the body responsible for maintaining the network, Network Rail.

    RMT general secretary Mick Cash said his members “deserve full recognition for their heroic efforts.

    “With the impact of the floods and storms coming alongside a massive programme of seasonal engineering works it is about time this government started respecting and supporting Britain’s rail workers rather than threatening them with more job cuts and the lethal gamble of Network Rail privatisation,” he said.
