There is considerable activity in railway matters on the northern tableland, and an agitation extending from Inverell to Coffs Harbour is being carried on to unite the two places by a line via Tingha, Guyra, and Guy Fawkes. Such a line would go through the famous Dorrigo country, giving the tableland and western districts the benefits of the enormous Dorrigo timber forests, besides bringing the western districts in direct communication with the coastal districts. A line has already been surveyed from Inverell to Guyra, with ruling grades of one in 60, and a survey has also been made from Guyra to the coast, with similar grades, except where it will be necessary to have recourse to a rack line to descend from the tableland.
A public meeting was held at Tingha last week, when delegates were present from Guyra and Wandsworth, and resolutions were carried favouring the construction of the line.
It was decided to form railway leagues in each centre, to circulate a petition at each place, and to appoint a deputation to wait upon the Minister for Works to present the petition, and to urge the construction of the Inverell to Coffs Harbour railway. The president of the Guyra Shire Council has convened a public meeting, to be held at Guyra on Wednesday, 10th Inst., to take necessary steps to urge the construction of the line, and invitations have been sent to Armidale and other places to support the movement.
