The Newcastle railway line is rich with history and has been a vital vein for transporting locals into the heart of Newcastle for over 100 years.
On Boxing Day 2014, the State Government will close the inner city rail line from Wickham to Newcastle, in a bid to revitalise the city centre.
The line will be cut west of Stewart Avenue, with plans for a form of light rail or tram to be installed in its place after the closure.

RAIL services to the agricultural sector were shambolic, unreliable and seriously inefficient - jeopardising plans to double the future growth of an industry that made $11 billion last year, a State Government inquiry has found.
