Welcome to the SENRUG website.

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.

Special Passenger Train Round The Ashington Blyth & Tyne Line - Friday 8th February 2019: SENRUG Chair Dennis Fancett was on board, along with Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling and senior representatives from Northumberland County Council, Northern Railway, Network Rail, Transport for the North and Nexus. See Dennis's report on his Chairman's Blog here.

Normal Service Resumes on Saturdays: RMT's industrial dispute with Northern Rail has been suspended; therefore there will be a normal Saturday service across Northern's network as from 16th February 2019. Let's hope the suspension leads to a full and permanent resolution of this damaging dispute which has resulted in reduced Saturday service over the last few months.
