French Train Strike

So, I'm planning to go to Colmar for my birthday next weekend - I was looking at tickets, and it looks like SNCF in France is planning a train strike from October 24 evening to October 26 morning. Since I was planning to leave Zurich on October 25, this is sort of annoying. This is my first experience with a train strike - is this likely just a threat and they'll cancel the strike? If it went forward, would all trains be disrupted or just some? I could rent a car instead, but I don't really want to. Thanks!

Re: French Train Strike


A strike is never total: there must be some train lines still operating, check the website.

On a different note I can tell you that Colmar is gorgeous, so I highly recommend this trip.
