  • 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.
