SAVING THE TRAIN AGAIN
Did you see former Taieri Gorge Railway Chairman John Farry’s piece in the ODT? He was involved from the Trust’s inception saving the gorge line and establishing the popular and internationally known successful operation.

He suggests we should all write letters to the editor. Would it be an idea to gather supporters for the cause? I am happy to collect names.
