Save the Great Northern Railway
- New South Wales Government Minister for Transport
Various proposals have been aired to convert a number of presently disused railway lines in New South Wales, Australia, to rail trails.
One such proposal is to convert the railway line (known as the Great Northern Railway or Main North) between Armidale and Wallangarra, or sections thereof, into a trail. That proposal includes a preferred option of dismantling the railway track (which has remained in situ) and funding the construction of the trail through sale of those items.
The Great Northern Railway is suitable for use as a tourist / heritage railway and the railway is included in a serious proposal for a revamped rail transport network in NSW and the railway should be retained.

To the New South Wales Government Minister for Transport:
We, the undersigned, wholeheartedly oppose any non-rail use of, or development within, the Great Northern Railway corridor between Armidale and Wallangarra, or any section thereof, which entails dismantling the railway track or otherwise rendering the railway track or corridor unusable by trains.
