About MCRUA

MCRUA was formed in 1987 to support users of the Manchester-Stockport-Altrincham-Knutsford-Northwich-Chester Railway Line; usually known as The Mid Cheshire Line. The Association has now grown to more than 500 members. As well as individual membership, it is pleased to have the support of a number of corporate organisations.

MCRUA produces a newsletter, the Mid Cheshire Rail Report, usually three times a year to keep its members informed of MCRUA activities, events on the Mid Cheshire lines and other railway related information. In addition MCRUA maintains this website which gives it a public face and provides up-to-the-minute news.

Train services on the Mid Cheshire Line are operated by Northern. MCRUA holds regular meetings with Northern through its Quality Improvement Team to examine Mid Cheshire Line users travel problems and to improve services.

Whilst the primary reason for MCRUA's existence was the Mid Cheshire Line, it now also represents users on the Crewe to Liverpool line.

It is also strongly supportive of the efforts of the Middlewich Rail Link Campaign to reopen a station at Middlewich and a new station at Gadbrook Park and provide a passenger train service through to Manchester and Crewe. Further details can be found on our Projects Page.
