Central Victorian councils are pushing for the State Government to introduce weekend train services from Maryborough to Ballarat.
The State Government committed $2 million for a feasibility study last year to consider passenger trains between Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo, with stops at Meredith and Castlemaine.
Mayors and CEOs from the Central Highlands region met in Maryborough last week to discuss furthering their campaign.
The Central Goldfields Shire's Chris Meddows-Taylor says he knows the cost of rail infrastructure is high but weekend services are a good starting point.
"Certainly there's a lot of support and people see the benefit between connecting Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo by passenger rail," he said.
"Huge potential for the future."
