New Operator Formally Sought for West Coast Wilderness Railway

New Operator Formally Sought for West Coast Wilderness Railway

New Operator Formally Sought for West Coast Wilderness Railway - 5 April 2013

The Tasmanian Government has taken the next step to save the West Coast Wilderness Railway, with Expressions of Interest to operate the service  advertised in early April.

The information has also been sent directly to a target list of potential investors - including the tourism industry and heritage railway sectors.

The Expressions of Interest process has multiple stages. The initial stage involves shortlisting organisations or consortiums that have the required capacity and expertise. Those candidates will then be invited to develop a full proposal.

The West Coast Wilderness Railway service will be temporarily suspended over winter, while major capital improvements are made, using $6 million of Commonwealth Government funding.
