Friday 31 January 1930, The Sydney Morning Herald

In a letter to the Editor, Mr. J. W. Abbott, of Tamworth, says that the steps taken by the Railway Commissioners to speed up passenger trains on the inter-city and Jenolan Caves services, and on other lines are meeting with general applause “But why is the northern line neglected?'” he asks “The first train that should have been speeded up is the Sunday train from Tamworth which, while being dignified as a mail train takes two hours every Sunday to do the first 30 miles. A train should be run on Sunday nights on the same times as the Glen Innes mail on other nights, leaving Tamworth at 11 15 p.m. and arriving in Sydney at 9 a.m., thereby saving two hours on the journey.”
