We are rail users, campaigning for and promoting the development of rail services in the West Midlands region, both passenger and freight.

We work with the decision makers, liaising with rail companies and authorities at local and national level.

We support station and line user groups in our region, to give rail users an effective voice.

We invite you to support us by becoming a member.  

You will receive a copy of our newsletter “West Midlands Rail User”, full of news, three times a year.  Membership costs just £10 per year.  

Why not become a member of the region’s leading rail campaigning voice.
