MPs have added their support to a campaign to reinstate train services to Birmingham New Street Station.
The Stourbridge Line User Group wants the line between Worcester and Birmingham via Kidderminster put back into the New Street timetable to allow passenger to more easily connect with other intercity services - rather than having to walk across the city from Snow Hill station.
Labour MPs Lynda Waltho (Stourbridge) and Sylvia Heal (Halesowen & Rowley Regis) both told the group they had contacted Ministers in the Department for Transport to raise the issue.
Mrs Heal added: "It is important that local people are well served by the line and that it offers an attractive alternative to car use in order to help the environment".
Julie Kirkbride, Conservative MP for Bromsgrove, expressed "warm support" for the campaign and Dr Richard Taylor, Independent MP for Wyre Forest, said trains serving New Street would be a huge benefit for disabled and elderly people.
The campaigners believes the New Street service would give Stourbridge line rail users direct access to trains serving regional and national destinations.
It said it would also make the area served by the line much more accessible from other parts of Great Britain.
