The Voice Of Rugby Rail Users

No trains to or from London Euston for three weekends (posted 12.08.18)

For the three weekends of 18/19, 25/26/27 August and 31 August/1 September, there will be major engineering work at North Wembley Junction.  As a result, London Euston station will be closed to all trains on these dates.
Virgin Trains will run a reduced service with no trains south of Milton Keynes Central.  Some trains from the north will also turn back at Rugby.  London North Western trains will not run south of |Hemel Hempstead.  On this occasion, a bus service will be provided between Rugby and Ketttering, from where passengers to London will be able to travel on East Midlands Trains.  As usual, tickets will also be valid from Chiltern Railways stations into London Marylebone.
All train services at Rugby will be running to a revised and reduced timetable.  If you are travelling over these weekends, please check your journey with the National Rail Journey Planner before setting out.

What we do

Rugby Rail Users Group aims to get the best possible train services and station facilities for rail travellers using Rugby station. We work with the train operating companies, Network Rail, national and local government to achieve this.

Recent successes include extra through trains between Rugby and the North West, and an earlier first train to Birmingham on Sunday mornings.

Currently our main aims include:

  • Maintaining the existing train service levels and improving these where possible
  • Further improvements to services between Rugby and the North West direct via the Trent Valley line
  • Later train services back from London and Birmingham on Saturday evenings
  • Maintaining and improving connections to destinations not directly served from Rugby
  • Maintaining and improving facilities at Rugby station
  • Improving connectional facilities between Rugby station and the town centre
  • Providing a travel information service for Rugby rail users via our website..

Your support will help us to achieve these aims. Join Rugby Rail Users Group now using the application form available by using this link.
