A HORSHAM woman hopes a new online campaign will highlight the need for a regular train service from Ararat to Horsham.
Susan Goodwin has started a Facebook page calling for more train services in the region.
She said an increase in trains would benefit everyone.
"Older people definitely prefer catching trains because it's a big deal to get on and off a bus," she said.
"There is also the added anxiety that the bus won't get to Ararat on time to catch the train.
"People who work in Stawell or even Ballarat would benefit.
"It would also help tourism in Horsham if people can just get on a train at Melbourne and come straight here.
"We have plenty of places for people to eat and stay, it's just getting here that's the problem."
