Sydney to Hornsby Line. [Newspaper Article] — The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate — 12 January 1889

Sydney to Hornsby Line. A CoBBEsroNDEXi writes as follows : — I notice in tho 'Herald,' dated January 4th, u letter referring to the inconvenience Rydo people are suffering under as regards trains ac commodation. The writer also states that tho trains from Rydo to Hornsby are running only with a fow pussencers. I wish to state that tho Rydo folks have had things all their own way for some considerable time, and that resi dents beyond and tho travelling public have been very much inconvenienced by the previous arrangements ; also that they havo had more station convenience 'than thoy are justly en titled to. The now arrangements made by Eddy and Co. aro to tho general public's ad vantago and will bo tho moans of advancing tho greater part of tho district, which hitherto has been, I may say, almost completely blockod. Iho now Commissioners havo acted very wisely if railways are to pay, study the majority— not a solect view, who are always crying out and being dissatisfied.
