Train fraud charges heard in court
TWO men accused of dishonestly gaining access to a diesel locomotive at Gympie's iconic Mary Valley Heritage Railway Station on April 2 were due to face Gympie Magistrates Court yesterday.
After a brief appearance in court yesterday, Tanis Fulcher will return to court for a long plea date on May 28, when he will face one charge of fraud by dishonestly gaining access to the engine.
Fulcher was released on bail and was ordered not to go within 50m of the Mary Valley Heritage Railway station on Tozer St, however the scope of the order did not include the MVHR track.
After a mention of his appearance in court yesterday, another man, Michael James Sydney Gitsham, will face three charges connected with the dishonest access to the train on May 13.
