Saltash Rail Users Group
SRUG was founded in 2006 and exists to represent the views of passengers and potential rail users in Saltash. We also aim to improve the awareness of and use of the train services in Saltash - with support from partners we publish a local timetable for Saltash and distribute it throughout the town and surrounding area.
The station now is served by 12 to 15 trains in each direction every weekday, and it is an increasingly popular and well used facility.
SRUG depends on the continuing support and help from the local community - to get involved please join and help in any way you can - most of all by USING THE TRAINS !
The DfT consultation on the specification for the new Greater Western Franchise has now closed and so we await their final deliberations. We can only hope that lessons have been learnt from the 2006 debacle which saw them attempt to slash our services by 50%.
SRUG successfully resisted those proposals and has continued to push for improved services with some success. Our passenger numbers have risen by over 100% since we started - the fastest non-branch line growth on the entire network. We hope that the base specification for the new franchise will be today's service level with some long overdue improvements and considerable flexibility for the new operator to meet future demand.
