The NSW Goverment announced it will close Newcastle Rail Line. Last train Christmas Day 2014. All Newcastle passengers to be off-loaded to buses at Hamilton or Broadmeadow for at least 2 to 3 years from Boxing Day. No replacement system has been approved nor planned, so the intention seems to be to simply close off train transport to Newcastle.
