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.

Train service at Morpeth Doubles From 15th December 2019: Yes, that's right. Morpeth will have virtually twice as many trains, as the new TransPennine Express Edinburgh - Liverpool service will call at Morpeth hourly in each direction. This means Morpeth will have 3 intercity operators serving the station: LNER, CrossCountry and TPE: SENRUG has produced a combined timetable for all 3 operators; view or download your copy here.

Artwork at Stations: Congratulations to Newminster Middle School who have provided the artwork at Morpeth Station (see photos here) and to Cragside CofE Primary School who have provided the artwork at Cramlington Station (see photos here).

SENRUG would like to thank the following organisations who have made donations towards the cost of funding our website and Newsletter printing for the 5 years starting from September 2019: Ashington Town Council, Blyth Town Council, Cramlington Town Council, East Bedlington Parish Council, Pegswood Parish Council, Seaton Valley Community Council and West Bedlington Town Council.
