Re: Trains Article Mentioned in NSW Parliament
to: greg h
Are you an apologist for CountryLink?, sounds like Aust railfans belong to
the flat earth society. How can railways in Australia ever get ahead if we
don't take any notice of what outsiders are telling us.
Railways are a business, not a charity to give some of us something to do at
weekends, we should all be interested in improving the current dismal NSW
services so they stay in business.
