Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack MP and Federal Member for Calare Andrew Gee MP announced an election commitment of $1.5M to the Oberon Tarana Heritage Railway Inc. The $1.5M will go towards the restoration of 5.2Km’s of the Oberon branch line between Oberon and Hazelgrove. After this section of the branch line is operational again OTHR will be seeking accreditation to run a Diesel hauled Heritage tourist train along the line which is expected to attract over 8000 visitors a year. This is only stage 1 of OTHR’s planning, stage 2 is the section of line between Hazelgrove and Carlwood.
