Tomorrow, the NSW Liberal government is going to attempt to pass a bill that will officially close the Newcastle Rail Line between Wickham & Newcastle in NSW, Australia.
Passing this bill means that the government can rip up the tracks, and sell to developers, or in other words, we believe it to be nothing more than a land grab.
Passing this rail line closure bill will mean that light rail vehicles will not be able to use the rail corridor to run on, as officially closing the Newcastle Rail Line will allow it to be sold to developers.
Let this party (the Shooters & Fishers Party) know, why are they building new rail lines in Sydney, yet want to remove a train line from the CBD of Newcastle.
Below are videos of how well the station was used before the NSW Coalition stopped the train service:
This video is what the crowds were like for a concert as described in the video itself, at Newcastle Station, before the train service was cut very early on 26th December 2014:-
