Train journeys in the West Midlands will see a number of changes as a new rail operator will take over the tracks.
The Department for Transport announced that West Midlands Trains Ltd will take over routes that are currently operated by London Midland from December.
The franchise covers routes in the West Midlands as well as London Euston to Crewe and Liverpool to Birmingham.
Lichfield MP Michael Fabricant has said he plans to press for a direct line from Lichfield to Burton, and for a new station to be built at Alrewas.
He said: "The new West Midlands trains franchise which will replace London Midland will undoubtedly benefit commuters from Lichfield Trent Valley and Lichfield City stations with 100 new carriages on the Cross City Line and compensation if there are delays of over 15 minutes.
"West Midlands Trains will also conduct feasibility studies into the opening of new stations in the West Midlands and I will be pressing for the opening of the Line from Lichfield Trent Valley to Burton for passenger traffic and the construction of a station at Alrewas to serve the National Memorial Arboretum and the village of Alrewas.
"I wish the senior management of London Midland well."
Passengers have been promised that there will be 400 new carriages introduced by 2021, and space for an extra 85,000 passengers on rush-hour services in Birmingham and London. West Midlands Rail has pledged there will also be improved access for disabled passengers and compensation for services that are delayed by more than 15 minutes.
It has been confirmed that the current workforce of 2,400 will pass to the new operator when the franchise is taken over.
