PASSIONATE community members demanded action for a long-awaited commitment to the restoration of a passenger rail service in the region, arming themselves with signs and taking to Langtree Mall on Saturday. 

About 180 supporters rallied in the Mildura CBD, walking down the mall and pleading for the return of the service, before marching to the Mildura train station, where NorthWest Rail Alliance (NRWA) president Christian Mitchell and Sunraysia residents addressed the vocal and frustrated crowd.

“We wanted to see the crowd energised, we wanted to see the speakers all in unison for the principle of passenger rail and we got that,” Mr Mitchell said.
