FOUNDER and executive chairman of rail operator SCT, Peter Smith, will be the special guest at the company’s three-year anniversary event at its Logic Wodonga site. Representatives from the Australian Rail Track Corporation, major manufacturers and people from local industry will also attend the event on 28 November.
Mr Smith’s vision for SCT has seen it grow into Australia’s largest privately owned rail company.
A rail terminal was a key pillar of the plan for Logic and the sale of the land to SCT in 2015 was the realisation of a vision that was 12 years in the making.
On 26 September, 2016, SCT ran the special service to Barnawartha to be wagon ready to start up on 3 October, 2016.
Fast forward three years and the Barnawartha terminal is running 2000 tonnes and 58 wagons interstate per week as well as 80 import or export containers and running four services a week.
The SCT-hosted event is on 28 November from 4pm at Huon Hill tavern including a site tour of SCT’s Barnawartha terminal form 2-3pm.
