Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
A protest outside the New South Wales Country Labor conference in Bathurst has resulted in rail union officials gaining a meeting with Transport Minister Michael Costa.
The Rail Tram and Bus Union has told Mr Costa of its concerns about regional rail services and jobs.
The union says 400 jobs are in limbo because the Australian Rail Track Corporation, which has leased much of the NSW track, plans to reduce maintenance staffing levels.
The union has also lobbied Mr Costa on rural branch lines and Countrylink services.
State secretary Nick Lewocki says the meeting with the Minister is a step forward.
"He's agreed that he will look at establishing the Countrylink Board as a matter of urgency to give country rail lines, that's the branch lines, some direction and some purpose," he said.
"We welcome at least that approach and we'll be talking with the Minister next week about that."
