The Mid Cheshire Rail Users Association

The Mid Cheshire Rail Users' Association (MCRUA) is a rail user group with over 500 members.

MCRUA is active in representing the interests of passengers on the Mid Cheshire Line from Chester to Manchester and those travelling between Crewe and Liverpool.

To further this,

  • MCRUA believes in promoting the Mid Cheshire line as an integral part of the local transport infrastructure
  • is a stakeholder in the Mid Cheshire Community Rail Partnership
  • meets regularly with the local train operating company management
  • MCRUA is also strongly supportive of the proposal to reopen the Crewe-Sandbach-Northwich railway and Middlewich station to passenger trains

MCRUA is also well known for the popular excursion trains, including steam specials, it has run over the years.
