Stabling the Bathurst Bullet train in Orange overnight and beginning the service in Orange would “kill two birds with the one stone” and allow passengers from Millthorpe and Blayney to get on board, according to Millthorpe Village Committee publicity officer Laurie Williams.
But an extra bus service in Orange to connect passengers to the Bathurst Bullet each morning would be unviable if it went through Millthorpe.
He said if the Bathurst Bullet started in Orange travelling via Millthorpe and Blayney it would only add about 15 minutes to the timetable and would give the village services in both directions.
Although some Millthorpe residents do use the bullet, Mr Williams said those unable to drive to Bathurst missed out on the service.
