All rail services are liable to disruption at the moment, largely due to Covid- related staff absence.   In addition, TransPennine Express is affected by industrial action.

Northern has told the RUG: Here is a link to the live travel alert on our website 

which should have the latest news of Northern services.


The Group has been very busy with the celebrations for the 175th Anniversary of the Lakes Line.  We held a very successful 'birthday party' on Oxenholme station on 21st September.  Our exhibition about the history of the Line continues at Kendal Museum.  The latest Bulletin has dates for events in Burneside, Staveley and Windermere in 2022.

Our Winter Bulletin was published just before Christmas. If you would like to read it but aren't yet a member, please go to the Membership page for details of joining.

The Group Sales Stand will be at the Kendal Model Railway Club show in the Leisure Centre, Burton Road, on 29th and 30th January.  Come along and meet us there, and you can join on the spot!


As with any active organisation there are always jobs to be done.  In addition to the regular work keeping our stations attractive to wait or arrive at, we wish to revamp this website, update the membership leaflet and have a presence on social media.  If you can help or advise on any of these jobs, please get in touch.
