Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he would join striking Southern Rail drivers on the picket line because the train company has "behaved in a bad manner".
More misery has been piled on commuters as Southern rail drivers start a three-day walk out.
When asked by the BBC if he would join the Southern Rail picket line, Corbyn said: "Yes I would because I think Southern Rail have behaved in a awful manner and the government seem to be more interested in protecting Southern Rail despite its appalling service and shortage of trains, overcrowding and all that goes with it and continued allowing them to run the franchise on Southern".
Aslef drivers went on strike Tuesday and will do so again on Wednesday and Friday.
The industrial action begins on Monday, when workers with the London Underground stage a 24-hour strike by closing subway stations in the central parts of the capital.
Southern told passengers to travel only if it was essential, as no trains will run on strike days, while services on other days will be affected by a continuing ban on overtime.

It is the longest-running dispute since the privatisation of the rail industry in the mid-1990s and there is little sign it is likely to be settled soon.
A fleet of 200 buses and coaches is providing road links from key Southern stations to stations on other operators' networks, but early reports suggested that the stations had remained quiet, with most commuters finding another route to work or else staying at home.
The company says many trains on its network and across Britain only require a driver, adding the change would not lead to any job losses or pay cuts and that it wants to increase the number of staff on board trains.
"We are deeply sorry for the unnecessary and unwarranted disruption this dispute is causing".
Calling on train unions to return to the negotiating table to resolve the dispute, Transport Minister Lord Ahmad said: "It's gone on far too long".
"The company has not been prepared to move - it is simply going through the motions, turning up at Acas and telling us that it intends to impose driver-only operation."We remain committed to a negotiated settlement, as was reached with ScotRail, but it is hard to negotiate with people who are not prepared to be flexible".
