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.

LATEST NEWS: An online petition to 10 Downing Street has been launched to provide protection for closed railway track-beds to prevent development across them that would stop the railway line subsequently being re-opened for passenger services. SENRUG supports this aspiration. Click this link to go to the parliament petitions website and sign. You have until 28 January 2016 to sign.

SENRUG launches local community meetings: Over the next 6 months SENRUG will be holding a series of public meetings in different communities across South East Northumberland, aimed at explaining our campaign objectives and attracting support from a wider area. Meetings at Pegswood, Cramlington, Bedlington Station and Sehill have now been held. In the new year we hope to hold meetings at Ashington, Newbiggin and Newsham. If you would like SENRUG to hold a meeting in your community please contact our Chairman and let us know.
