Perceptions mean nothing when the cost to the government to provide this supposedly superior form of transport is expected to be tens of millions more than the road-based option.Or cost to the tax payer....!
Hope the time will prove you wrong.I would agree whole heartedly as the proposal as I read it is more to provide a 3km shuttle type service along the coast, maybe its part tourist in the beginning owing to the holiday park it goes to, but Byron is not just a tourist location & has a fair population base that this proposal targets.

The Byron Beach Resort plans to run a rail-motor from their site into Byron Bay, starting next December. Here's their submission to Byron Shire Council for their support.Good afternoon,

It appears that they are being serious about this and have enlisted some rail consultancies to help them deal with Rail Safety and government side of views.
At least it is a move from just asking govt to do it which will not happen.
Just explaing why my posts are a bit flippant Mr I gotta prove you wrong b4cause Im serious and superior.It would be nice if we could take you seriously, but the lack of substance in your hot-air arguments doesn't lend itself to much support.
The internet is one of those places where its hard to win an argument because someone always knows better, get over it, Merry Christmas all..
Who is to say the whole line is stuffed?If it doesn't run 'coalies' or something to make money, it won't be running.
Some of it would be ok, some of it might need bog holes dug out or a tamp.
How quick did they put the new bridge at Boggabri when they had to?
Get Byron Bays unemployed to help for work for the dole.
There has to be a way without spending one billion, everything doesn't have to be brand new, they won't be running coalies.
Who is to say the whole line is stuffed?Okay, I'll bite.
There has to be a way without spending one billionNo, you just can't handle the truth.
everything doesn't have to be brand new, they won't be running coalies.Sorry, safety standards.
Nah just give it a tamp and get a PW52/53 to certify it, get the dole bludgers to do the drainage and re sleepering after they get a RISI and pay rise.I am officially certain you are as high as the rest of your preferred slave labour.
Ask the people who built the Bopggabri bridge in a week can they do a deal on a few trestle replacements then you need the Premier to talk to Tweed Head council and see if they are interested in railing to Byron bay if not shortem the line to Ocean Shores.
I'm sure it will create an economic boom and Government will get some of its money back in alcohol tax anyway and they charge nearly a thousand bux in rego so the hippies would love a 620 yo yo on the weekends off their heads.
