It included a commemorative edition of The Gulburn Post, a photo collage of the train station, a USB with drone footage at the station, an Opel card, a list of local employees over the years, and train schedules. Earlier, the Gulburn Library had appealed for items for the capsule. But two years later, when the plates are in place, the time capsule is empty at the Gulburn Regional NSW Trainlink office. Terence Carpenter, secretary of the former Golburn Roundhouse Conservation Society, is, for one, on leave about inaction. “Two years down the track, the time capsule is not running out and (NSW Trainlink managers) is the problem,” Mr. Carpenter said. “Volunteers take it if you want to do something right. If you involve public servants, there’s a good chance they’ll be able to fill it.” Also read: ‘The new hospital has space but where is Golburn’s MRI machine?’ Mr Carpenter said he was disappointed that a group of willing volunteers was “performing”, but that “traffic clowns for the NSW” intervened and “took over” in March 2019, 10 weeks before the big event. Not only did it fail to bury the capsule, but the bar also failed to mount in time. Instead, the governor lifted the curtain on the capsule. Mr Sutar said by the following November, the bar had not yet been installed. His committee had arranged for a plaque and its wording for que 600 to be paid by the members. But for NSW, the traffic intervention, the term changed, resulted in $ 1,100, which it did. Additionally, it was too late to make time for celebrations. At the end of 201 late, he complained to NSW Premier Gladys Berezclian to two transport ministers, Andrew Constance, and other regional NSW trainlink managers, expressing his frustration and disappointment. Mr Carpenter said he had received no response.

A spokesman for NSW Trinlink said: “There are plans to bury the capsule of Golburn railway station staff in the near future after the delay due to COVID.” “As long as the date is yet to be set, it will likely last a few months,” she said. The organization did not include it because it did not bury it at the time. Meanwhile, railway writer and photographer Leon Auberg described the delay and decision-making as “a little shabby”. “I think a lot of people have eggs on their faces,” he said. “I (also) don’t know what Margaret Beazley thinks about it because inviting her here to unveil the plaque and announce the capsule is a big deal.” Mr. Oberg 19. In was on the organizing committee for the 100th anniversary celebrations of the railways. The then-governor, Sir Roden Cutler, once buried the capsule in a garden in front of the train station. It included Premier, Bob Eskin, and Gulburn City Mayor, Ernie McDermott, Railway Commissioner, Neil McCusker, books, newspapers, photos and other items. It was to open on May 200, 2000, at its 200th anniversary. Mr Oberg suggested that the latest capsules be opened in 100 years, not 500, to avoid conflict. He said it was rejected. In 201 In, he urged NSW Trainlink management not to put digital content in unreadable capsules for a possible 500 years. Instead, he suggested photos, celebrating the anniversary of the Gulburn Post edition and one of Track and Signals magazine, for which he completed an eight-page glossy feature at the event. It can be added to other hard-copy items. ALSO READ: Changed times boost bus service numbers but is it suitable for everyone? But he said the idea has not been fully taken into account. A spokesman for NSW Trainlink said the organization was aware that technologies such as USB could be surpassed in the coming years. “… We also considered that, like VCR tapes, they have the resources to convert them from one format to another. We hope that the same will happen to existing USB in the coming years,” she said. . We take care of you Have a say in the form below and don’t forget to subscribe if you like local news.
