Another $268,000 has been announced in funding to support the efforts of the Zig Zag Railway get back on track.
Bathurst MP Paul Toole said the funding would be for continuing restoration works.
The investment is part of the NSW Government's $16.5 million Crown Reserves Improvement Fund which aims to upgrade reserves and facilities on Crown lands in regional communities doing it tough.
Mr Toole said the latest funding follows previous grant announcements for the Zig Zag Railway from the NSW Government.
This includes a $150,000 Heritage Grant in May of this year for the preservation of stonework on the tunnels, viaducts, culverts and retaining walls; and $2.3 million announced by Premier Gladys Berejiklian when she visited Zig Zag in November 2018.
Mr Toole said he hoped that carriages will be back on the tracks next year as part of the commissioning process before the attraction can be reopened to the public again.
