Save Our Rail NSW Inc. has been involved in a continuous campaign to raise support for the Newcastle rail service that the State Government plans to cut. We have organised a number of public meetings, rallies and protests that demonstrate the overwhelming support for the maintenance and improvement of the Newcastle Service as essential to the life of the region.
Save Our Rail is not a “rabble” as unfairly depicted in newspaper cartoons, but a responsible group of unpaid volunteers, who undertake to work on behalf of the community, to retain services and advocate public transport use. We have co-operated with other groups, including the Newcastle Alliance and Hunter Business Chamber.
Maintaining and improving Lower Hunter public transport benefits everyone!
