Welcome to the North Staffordshire Community Rail Partnership Website

We are North Staffordshire Community Rail Partnership and we work to promote and develop the Crewe-Stoke-Derby rail route, known as the North Staffordshire Line, as well as Stone, Stafford and Penkridge Stations.


Our key aims are:

  • Involving the local community, including schools, businesses and local councils, in innovative projects to improve the route for passengers
  • Developing station improvement projects to improve the travel experience
  • Encouraging and facilitating station ‘adoption’, building volunteer support for route stations from the community
  • Promoting train services for travel to work, to education and for leisure
  • To improve the Crewe - Stoke - Derby Service to help realise its strategic importance as a key rail link between the North-West and the East Midlands and as a connecting service to all parts of the UK
