Rail enhances visitors’ stay (via letter to the Newcastle Herald):
RECENTLY we spent time with visitors to Newcastle from Tasmania, who came for our jazz festival.
They can’t believe that the government is shutting down the train into our city.
We showed him where the new university campus, for 4000 students, and the new law courts are being built – right at Civic station, which will close. He just shook his head in disbelief.
We’re shaking our heads too, but we’re not giving up yet.
