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.

Special Fares Promotion until 28th October: Northern are offering special fares saving up to one third from the normal piece for Morpeth and Cramlington to Newcastle. From either station the fares are standard single £4.00, standard return £4.90 and off-peak return £4.10. These special fares are available on Northern services only, not CrossCountry or LNER.  Northern say these fares can be purchased from either the machine or ticket office at Morpeth, or on the train, but please make sure you are offered this ticket when travelling on a Northern service. Also look out for even cheaper “advance” fares on the 07:56 Morpeth to Newcastle sometimes as low as £2.20 single, but such tickets must be purchased in advance and are only valid on the specified train. Passengers from Cramlington may find it cheaper to book from Morpeth to get this bargain.
