An outback mayor fears a re-allocation of Queensland Rail (QR) staff is signalling a reduction in services to the west.
Winton Shire Mayor Bruce Collins is angry the community was not consulted about the movement of four jobs from the town to other QR service points.
Councillor Collins says it will be a great loss both socially and financially to the inland community.
"The long and the short of it is that the maintenance gang of four people currently working out at Winton will be absorbed into other gangs so those four jobs will be lost, but what I find really annoying and the community will find annoying is that this has just come out of the blue," he said.
"There are some strange decisions being made, there's only one conclusion as to where it's going to end and that'll be no services at all."
Several calls were made to QR but it declined to comment.
