Tumut News

27 September 1879 Wagga Wagga Express

The exodus from Tumut to Sydney, for the purpose of visiting the: Garden Palace, has not assumed very large proportions as yet.

Almost every resident speaks of going down, but the general expression is 'time enough,' no one seems in a hurry to get the journey over.

Cobb and Co. are not spoken of in very flattering terms, the reason is that while Government has reduced the fare by rail, the coach fare has not been reduced anything between Tumut and Gundagai, and only 2s 6d of a reduction between the latter place and Cootamundra.
