LETTER: Mallee’s survival rests with train’s return

Why can’t we start small to rebuild our train link rather than having a complete link.

Just like the government has restored the train down south beyond Maryborough, why can’t we at this end create an express daily train between Ouyen and Mildura that meets the VLine Coach service that operates between Adelaide and Sydney?

Like the lake, this would aid in Ouyen’s revival, offers a new alternative to two capital cities and is one step closer to a complete link to Melbourne.

Doing it this way, the complete service would eventually meet in the middle while with the current plan, Mildura is last on the list.
