This gang is working in front of the factory area just North of Oberon. They are using machinery and operators generously provided by local businesses. The provision of this support is critical to the restoration of the line and is very much appreciated by OTHR and the community.
A full list of donors will be provided in an Honor Roll as details come to hand.
