35+ participants attended the Rail Trail workshop at Gundagai on Friday Feb 6th, hosted by Gundagai Council and Rail Trails for NSW. The workshop exchanged information on economic benefits, trail/fence/gate design that take into account adjoining land owner land management needs, rail trail feasibility studies, detailed development plans, requirements around community support, and the current NSW government expression of interest for pilot trail funding. Part of the workshop focused on what the next steps were for moving the Gundagai Rail Trail forward. Before and after the workshop participants had the opportunity to inspect Gundagai Heritage Rail Area and the station areas / potential trailheads at Coolac and at Tumblong, including a refreshing drink at the Tumblong Hotel.
