Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Work has begun on repairing Broken Hill's Silver City Comet, which was damaged by vandals last week.
A group of children damaged the antique train, smashing windows and kicking antique doors.
The curator of the Railway and Historical Museum, Christine Adams, said local businesses and residents have donated enough money to cover the cost of repairs.
Ms Adams said several businesses have chosen to remain anonymous, but a little more help is needed.
"They have donated the glass, and said if we can get someone to install it that'd be the way to go, you know to keep the costs down," she said.
"So they have generously donated the glass and our volunteers are working on that now, and it will be a little bit fiddly and tricky but it will get done."
Ms Adams thanked locals for their support.
"We had tremendous support, people ringing and coming in, just quite devastated that this museum was hit," she said.
"And we just have to try and do whatever we can to make sure that it doesn't happen again."
The museum board is now looking into increasing security.
