RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "With the hottest day in Britain’s history causing havoc on our railways, it is more important than ever that the government reverses its £2bn cut from the industry.
"Climate change is one of the most significant challenges faced by humanity and the railways is part of the sustainable green future people need.
"The government is committing industrial and environmental vandalism by making these cuts. At the same time, it is allowing record profiteering from the private sector who are bleeding hundreds of millions from our railways every year."
