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.

Ashington Re-opening - Public Consultation: Northumberland County Council are undertaking a public consultation on the Ashington re-opening (which the Council now call The Northumberland Line) at different locations along the route. Details are in the attached link: Please try to get along to one of the consultations and express your support for the re-opening.

Charges at Morpeth Station Car Park: Please note charges will be introduced in the Northumberland County Council (NCC) car park effective from 19th August 2019. Charges already apply in Northern's car park. NCC will also offer season ticket discounts for regular parkers but please note their tickets will NOT be interchangeable with those for Northern's car park. SENRUG continues to be in discussion with both car park operators and is asking for reciprocity of tickets and free evening and weekend parking. NCC will review the situation again with SENRUG in 6 months. NCC also hope to have completed a modest car park extension by December.

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).
