Maryborough Rally Saturday 24 October 2015

Dear Rail Revival Members and Supporters,

Don’t forget the rally in support of additional passenger rail services on the Maryborough line.

This coming Saturday 24th October, 10AM at the IGA Carpark Maryborough… sausage sizzle as well.

This event will have the local ALP Upper House member and Minister for Agriculture, Jaala Pullford in attendance.

While this rally is not organised by the Rail Revival Alliance, we fully support the cause and urge our members and supporters to attend

Kind Regards

Noel Laidlaw

Notice of Annual General Meeting

To all members of the Rail Revival Alliance and supporters.

Please be aware that the RRA will be holding its Annual General Meeting in early March 2015.

Date: 1st March 2015
Time: 11:45am
Location: Victorian Goldfields Railway rooms on platform 3, Castlemaine Railway Station

We have invited the new Minister, the Hon Jacinta Allen to be the guest speaker at this meeting.

The business of the day will be to elect the new committee for 2015, to receive the audited accounts of the Association, and to deal with any motions that have been submitted prior to the meeting.

In addition, it is hoped to discuss and review the campaign of the RRA and to look at developing future policy and strategy for the Association.

Please keep this date free.

Coffee and limited refreshments can be purchased at the station from the VGR kiosk.

So some ideas people and what do you think about a “policy and strategy” get-together in a few weeks time.

The Rail revival Alliance wishes to thank the assistance and ongoing cooperation of Victorian Goldfields Railway in providing the rooms for our meeting and the very excellent  service they have afforded us in the past with our train trips.

Rail Revival Train

Rail Revival Alliance is pleased to announce the running of the Rail Revival Train to celebrate the 140 anniversary of the Maryborough to Castlemaine line. That is on Sunday 6th July.

The train will run from Newport with a pickup at North Shore and Ballarat and then on to Maryborough. We will then head back to Geelong Station and then back to Melbourne to allow patrons time to catch the 4pm V/Line velocity back home to Maryborough.

Stay tuned for further details… it will be great day for Rail Revival!
