Nationals join rally against rail sale

North Coast Nationals today joined a people's rally against Labor's rail sale legislation outside the New South Wales Parliament in Sydney.

A series of community leaders spoke against Labor's plan to sell off 3000 kilometres of regional rail corridors including the Casino to Murwillumbah line.

These included Northern Rivers TOOT train group president Karen Kolbe, NSW Opposition leader Barry O'Farrell, Nationals leader Andrew Stoner and Shadow Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian.

The North Coast Nationals MPs said they were pleased to report full support from the Opposition leadership for their campaign against the Labor sell-off.
