Wallangarra mail train

leave a comment »

Friday 17 November 1933, The Courier-Mail (Brisbane)

Sir, – Now that New South Wales authorities have definitely decided not to interfere with the present mall train arrangements between Brisbane and Sydney, via Wallangarra, it behoves the whole of the citizens in the area between Toowoomba and Tamworth inclusive to do their best to build up the service by using it on every possible occasion. All the Chambers of Commerce and Progress Associations interested should keep on exercising their influence to assist the service and try to improve it in every possible way – make it more attractive and encourage tourists and others to travel over the route at least one way on their visit to this State. Not only the matter of the convenience of the people residing inland, but the principle of preserving the great country interests is involved.

I am, sir, &c,

HERBERT YEATES.
