Proposed Railways Schemes on trundleage.co.uk has been set up to create a single place where you can keep up to date with the various proposals for opening/reopening railway stations and lines across the UK. The latest news is published on the news pages with categories and search functions enabling you to find out how work has progressed on each project.

Any views expressed in this blog are entirely my own and not those of my employer.


How do I keep up to date with updates?

There are two easy methods.

We have a press release/update/meeting planned. Can we contact you to get it on the website?

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. All of the posts have the ability to comment against, so I’m more than happy for you to comment against any post. All posts require you to leave your email address and I will be able to contact you for any further details, particularly if there are any time restrictions or current sensitivity with the subject.

You don’t mention a proposal to open a line/station that I am aware of?

I can’t guarantee that I have the full list and I really appreciate any updates, contributions and further comments that you may have. Please don’t hesitate to comment on this post and provide any further information that you may have on a project that you are aware of. I am also available on Twitter.

Why don’t you publish many updates about HS2?

High Speed 2 is an opportunity for enhancing the rail network but there are other websites that can offer a better understanding of the project as it develops. I am focusing on connections to High Speed 2, which are likely to develop over the next few years as the regions near the route seek to maximise the benefits that this new transport corridor is expected to bring. I have tagged all relevant posts with the HS2 Connections tag.

Your link to a website is broken

It’s frustrating when that happens. If you have any new links for the information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch either by commenting below or Tweeting me

Please stop linking to our site!

I’m sorry if I have caused you any issues. The internet is built on links and this website is not aimed to remove traffic from other sites but to enhance it. Additional links help improve search engine ratings and drive traffic towards your site. If you’re unhappy with being linked to from this site or the use of your site to provide updates on this site, please don’t hesitate to comment. I’m fairly quick to respond although do note that I can be out of the UK and it is difficult to work on foreign WiFi connections. If I don’t respond, try again. Do note that I get a lot of spam and “all capital” responses tend to not be read.

Where does the name come from?

On a thread in a web forum about travelling on trains, a user quipped that anyone travelling on a multiple unit was not getting “haulage” but was getting trundled around the countryside, so they were getting “trundleage”. I personally thought that would be a great domain and website name, so I snapped it up. When I was looking to launch this website, this domain name was not in use and I felt it would cover the topic well as we trundled around the UK picking up news and updates about proposed railway stations and lines.

Why do you have adverts?

I have placed adverts on the website to help support the hosting costs for the website and worked hard to try to minimise the impact on the reading experience and apologise for any issues that it may cause. I have included comments on the privacy policy page to help understand what information and data processing that Google Adsense and WordPress undertakes. There should be no pop ups provided by this website and I would ask for you to contact me if you experience any whilst browsing this website.

    1. Hi Tony,

      I wasn’t aware of Beam Park railway station proposed. Thank you for drawing my attention to it. I am updating the archives of this website with information about this proposed railway station to ensure that the website remains a vital resource for readers.

    1. Hi Tony

      Thank you for your updates. I really appreciate them. I rely on the observations of readers to ensure that this site remains a useful resource for everyone who reads this site. I have updated the page on Wales with your comments.



  3. trundle where do we find a list of 13 unsucessful proposals. also i have read the missing 4 million from original 20 million pot is to be allocated two 2/3 stations that are not quite ready for grip 3 ?

    1. Hi Tony,

      I don’t have a confirmed a list of the unsuccessful bids. However, I believe that the following bids were submitted in addition to the successful bids

      Marsh Barton
      Rotherham (Masborough)
      Cardiff Parkway
      Thanet Parkway
      Soham (possibly)

      That leaves five submissions unconfirmed. I produced a list of possible candidates for NSF2 candidates.


      With regards to confirming the list, I have just submitted an FOI request to the DfT so I should have a confirmed list by the end of August at the latest. I will share this on the website when I receive this information.

      I have not read anything about the remaining £4m. If you can post the source of that information, I can do some investigation.



  4. Always interesting to visit this site and it keeps well up to date. Just one minor correction needed for the Levenmouth entries. They state `Thornhill’ but of course this should be Thornton.

    I know Thornhill in Dumfries & Galloway have their own plans for reconnections
