Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The Orange Rail Action Group has vowed to keep fighting for a morning train from Orange to Sydney after the tabling of a 10,000-signature petition in State Parliament last week.
Member for Orange Phil Donato spoke to the petition saying the extension of one of the Bathurst Bullet trains to Orange was needed plus upgrades for the train line.
"If just one of those two services was stabled at Orange it would kill two birds with the one store," he said.
However Regional Transport minister Paul Toole was non-committal in his reply although he did suggest there was a possibility of a coach service from Orange to meet the planned second Bullet service.
NON-COMMITTAL: Regional Transport Minister Paul Toole replies in Parliament.
ORAG chairman Dr Peter Bilenkij said the petition was "just step one" in the fight.
"We will still be working with the government and our local member to have a satisfactory early morning train service at the correct time," he said.
