Welcome to the SENRUG website.

Northern Train approaching Morpeth. Dave Shaw.

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.

Major Funding Package For The Northumberland Line (Ashington Blyth & Tyne Line Re-opening) Announced. The government has committed £34m to move the Northumberland Line re-opening to the next phase. SENRUG Chair Dennis Fancett describes this as a significant funding package representing approximately 20% of the expected final cost and one that clearly indicates government intention to fully deliver the scheme.
