 FUTURE RAIL TRAIL - NOT YET DEVELOPED - CLOSED TO ALL

Description

This 10km line was opened in 1954 to service the now closed Wangi Power Station. The line ceased operation in 1972 and was decommissioned in 1989. The State Rail Authority are now apparently disposing of the land.

Given that the former railway passes through mature forest and could link up with other trails in the area, the Lake Macquarie council may consider developing this as a rail trail. Indications of support to the council would obviously encourge the council.
