      Tourist railways can attract enthusiast from around the world, if done well. We would need to study successful (and non-successful ) railways in this country and around the world to get it right and be able to apply for long term government funding. It would require both Vic and South Australian governments to work together on this tourism project.

    Invest more in the small towns to keep them going. They all have history which can be used to attract visitors.

    For Casterton to be an area that is pro-active, that utilises its great potential and encourages contributions by younger generations. With leadership to give encouragement This can all be done and Casterton can grow again. I have a list of twelve proposals to take us progressively into 2040.

    I recommend to NOT crate a walking trail on the Casterton to Branxhome. Instead it will be far more beneficial to reinstate the rail line from Sandford to Branxhome to take hundreds of thousand tons of freight that is decimating our roads. I'll tell you how.

    The safety of our senior residents is terrorised when trying to cross Casterton's main street without a pedestrian crossing. I know the trucking industry is vital for our town, but surely the lives of our residents is much more important.

    Mary Gilmore is one of this nation's greatest women. She married into a local family and taught in several of our district's schools. There should be a memorial to her.

    If we want the shire to really be connected, then there should be a regular Portland to Casterton passenger service. Another thing that may help seniors is to have additional parking at rear of shops with rear access for those who cannot turn their neck sufficiently to see behind them.
