Snowy Monaro Regional Council explores Bombala-Eden rail link
The Snowy Monaro Regional Council is considering the viability of rebuilding the defunct railway line from Queanbeyan to Bombala - with the possibility of continuing the line through to the Port of Eden.
I know that there is a better thread for this but I cannot find it for looking despite the fact that I contributed to it, sorry.Basically the previous discussion said there was no chance such a railway ever making a dollar or even a subsidised dollar as there is too little freight over too hilly a railway and the railway they had/have, stopped carrying any reasonable freight volumes decades ago and hence closed. Even Canberra which currently has no freight traffic but all previous and currently proposed freight tasks head towards Sydney.
The other thread already discussed this at lengthThanks John,
