RAIL users in Huddersfield have helped set a record.
They were among 1m passengers who used the Penistone Line last year - beating the barrier for the first time ever.
And now people working behind the scenes to promote the line have pledged: `We want more!'
The Penistone Line Partnership believes even more people would benefit from travelling on the line, which links Huddersfield and Sheffield.
Northern Rail, who run services in the region, have confirmed that passenger journeys on the line last year topped 1m.
"This is great news for the line" said Partnership chairman Neil Bentley.
"I work as a driver and it is obvious driving trains on the line last year that more and more people are using the service. This is great for the long-term future of the line."
Brian Barnsley, the rail group co-ordinator, said: "The news that we have topped a million passengers is wonderful.
"In the long term, the only thing that will guarantee service are the passengers.
"We had set the million target for 2006, so to reach it a year in advance is great news.
"The challenge now is to increase passenger numbers still further. I believe that is possible.
"The trains are busy at peak times, with people heading to work in Sheffield and Huddersfield, but off-peak we can do a lot more.
"If every person decided to use the train once, instead of getting into a car, it would make an enormous difference.
"And there is a spin-off for other services, such as the trans-Pennine links and GNER. I am just pleased to see more people using any of Britain's train services."
The Partnership organises many events on the trains, including music nights, celebrations and art shows. The service links stations including Lockwood, Berry Brow, Denby Dale and Shepley.
