Welcome to the SENRUG website.

Local train near Cramlington - John Brierley

SENRUG – The South East Northumberland Rail User Group – is a voluntary organisation that promotes rail travel and campaigns for better rail services in, within, to, from and through South East Northumberland, representing the interests of both existing and potential rail travellers in the area.

By ‘potential’, SENRUG means those who would use rail services if only the trains went where they want to go, at the time they want to go, at a price they can afford, and in a clean, safe, secure, accessible and easy to understand manner.

Please look through our website to find out more about our current campaigns and how we pursue them. Use the Contact button below to let us know if you agree or advise us of ideas of your own.

The more people we speak for, the louder our voice is heard. If you support our objectives, we invite you to add your voice to ours and join SENRUG, to help us achieve our campaigns and develop new ones.

Saturday 9 December, Sunday 10 December, Sunday 24 December, Sunday 31 December. Industrial Action on CrossCountry. Please check for the latest information. If the Industrial Action goes ahead, most of the scheduled CrossCountry services at Morpeth will not run. This is particularly frustrating as Sunday 10th December would otherwise be the start date for additional services at Morpeth. Tickets for CrossCountry services may be used on CrossCountry trains the day before or day after the booked journey or you can apply for a full refund. Tickets may also be used on Northern and TPE services and on Arriva busses X15 and X18 between Newcastle and Berwick. Full open or off-peak tickets can also be used on any Virgin service, but CrossCountry Advance tickets will only be accepted on a limited selection of Virgin services without paying again. Please take particular care if booked to travel on Christmas Eve to make sure you don’t get stranded.

NEW DECEMBER 2017 Timetable: Get ready for a massive boost in services at Morpeth: 2 more CrossCountry trains each way every day. More Virgin trains at weekends. Northern service on Sundays. Tickets available to book now. For complete intercity timetable for Morpeth click here. For details of Northern's new Sunday service at Morpeth and Cramlington click here.
