The RMT union says walkouts across the network will happen after talks failed to find a breakthrough.
A strike by more than 40,000 rail workers will go ahead next Wednesday after no breakthrough in talks, the RMT trade union has said.
The walkout by staff at Network Rail and 14 train operating companies is part of a continuing row over pay, jobs, and terms and conditions.
It follows a similar strike in June that saw rail services severely disrupted across three days.
The RMT had previously said talks were intense and strikes were a last resort.
