The pictures of a proud Newcastle Railway Station that has provided the people of Newcastle with a central railway station and with ease of access for train for a considerable time.
The decision by the Mike Laird Liberal government to truncate the line is nothing short of pure greed to satisfy the gross appetites of unethical developers. The developers donated funds to the Liberal Party and ICAC investigated the shonky dealings and two Liberal sitting members were sacked and the city's Lord Mayor for their part in the sham dealings.
SAVE OUR RAIL (SOR) launched an appeal and had an injunction preventing further dislocation and removal of the rail infrastructure, that was directed to be removed by the then Minister for Transport, who was rewarded for her efforts by Mike Baird and promoted to the position of Treasurer after the last election.
It is hoped that the stony faced expression as depicted in the photo of Mike Baird remains for some time to come after the appeal decision is determined and trains return to Newcastle Railway Station.
It is great to see communities standing and fighting against inept pernicious and insular politicians for the resources and infrastructure they deserve.
