I acknowledge the Zig Zag Railway committee on the edge of the Blue Mountains. I met with the committee in mid-July this year at the Springwood Sports Club.
Many of the committee members come from my electorate and from the neighbouring electorate of Bathurst. I met with them to hear about their huge volunteer efforts in restoring the visitor facilities at the Zigzag Railway after the horrendous 2013 fires and the subsequent vandalism.
I was updated on the locomotive, the rolling stock repairs and the plans of the committee to reopen and recommence passenger journeys in late 2019.
I pay tribute to Lee Wiggins, the energetic chairperson; Ben, the engineer and deputy chair of the committee; Wayne, the operations manager; and board members James, Thomas, Les, Malcolm and John. Congratulations.
