Railcorp Criminals To Demolish Rockdale Signalbox!
#1
Morning,
David Xuereb of the Rockdale Signalbox Group was notified yesterday that they are to vacate the Rockdale signalbox by June 1st so they are fee to demolish this wonderful structure.
A recent investigation revealed some traces of asbestos dust (in the roof) and lead. We were told by the inspector that it would likely be that we would need to vacate for a short time while Railcorp cleaned it up.
Sadly Railcorp has said they can't afford it and that the structure is to be demolished and removed, something they apparently can afford to do.
Again we find ourselves with another ironic 'railway' example of a structure being destroyed just after being painted.
An emergency meeting is being held today to discuss what action can be taken, both in regards to saving the signalbox and in regards to compensation for the large amounts of money so far spent on it.
Its been a struggle to get the money so far used and for Railcorp to come along and do this due to their own penny pinching is more than can be excepted.
We wont be accepting this without a fight but we do ask everyone to please take the time to contact Railcorp and express your uphappiness/disgust/anger at the loss of another important piece of railway history.

Any mention in the media, the internet and other outlets would certainly be appreciated. They are already planning to approach the relevent ministers.
There is NOT much time.

At the very least they could give time for the group to try to find the money needed to fix the problem.
However all suggestions seem to be falling of deaf ears, afterall that carpark around it certainly does get full and if I was a suspicious person I would probably start to think they already had plans.

Please help.

Brad
