Trucking Yards - Special Report - April 2009
To some extent this can be considered a tribute to the work of ONE volunteer. He is a quiet, industrious and modest worker and generally prefers to work alone - a real quiet achiever. Oberon Council has done some work on the yards and other members have sprayed the yards at various times, but the bulk of the clean-up and maintenance work shown here was carried out by one person, OTHR volunteer -  Barry Webb      Many thanks for your outstanding contribution Barry.

If you are passing by and see him working away on the yards and nearby rail line, please call in and tell him what a wonderful job he is doing as he is unlikely to read this page!
We need to remember that there are very few of these yards left intact in NSW and the community has a special responsibility to see that this one is preserved for appreciation by future generations.

The neatly mown grass around the area is maintained by Barry solely by means of a hand mower.. Barry has also kept the adjacent line free of grass and weeds.

Keeping the site clean and tidy means that it can actually be used by Council from time to time, and this usage serves to keep the area in a good tidy condition. Some sympathetic timber repairs are needed on the site and OTHR intend to manage this project. Barry's mate, Arthur has contributed to part of this scene by restoring the 138 mile post. the last one on the line close to Oberon.
