Sign To Save The Zig Zag Railway.

      Darlington, Australia

Zig Zag Railway is a heritage railway at Lithgow in New South Wales, Australia which operated between 1869 and 1910. It has been running steam and diesel hauled trains over the Zig Zag for tourists since it's restoration in 1988, and it a vital link in the historical fabric of the surrounding areas.The stated reasons for closure are lack of funds and lack of skilled workers to maintain the engines and the lines that form the Zig Zag Heritage Railway.
There are other avenues to explore, including seeking sponsorship and commercial funding, fundraising for the line and more widespread pooling of resources in order to connect skilled workers with the tasks necessary to keep the trains in operation.

Save an icon, keep in on the tracks.
