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.

The Northumberland Line (Ashington Blyth & Tyne Line Re-opening) Consultation has now closed. Our thanks to Council staff for all the hard work they have and are putting in managing the consultation and responding to comments. Just to be clear, the consultation was over some of the design detail, particularly station design and level crossing changes, not about whether the scheme should or should not go ahead at all. Indeed, we remain hopeful that a government funding decision will be announced very shortly, and the timescale of trains running by 2023 will be achieved.

 

Website and Newsletter printing costs (2019-2024) funded by contributions from Ashington, Blyth, Cramlington and West Bedlington Town Councils, East Bedlington & Pegswood Parish Councils and Seaton Valley Community Council.
