Commuting stalls after 2nd British rail strike

A two-day-old strike by locomotive engineers stranded millions of British commuters and tourists over the weekend, but management says it is determined to break the walkout.

Some engineers have defied strike orders, running 5 to 6 percent of the trains in response to a threat from the government rail company to fire anyone refusing to keep the trains rolling. The strike, over management plans to change work schedules, was the second in a week for the British Rail network. An earlier walkout by other rail workers collapsed after two days for lack of support.
