• Following years of weathering, trail use and minimal maintenance, community concern then questioned the state of this aging rail trail. Not only had the trail slipped off the radar for most trail users, it also had gaps in it due to six missing railway bridges, plus a held view that a new end destination of significance was needed. A core group of individuals came together with mutual concern about the condition of the then O'Keefe Rail Trail. They also had a vision to upgrade and extend it. Work on lobbying various levels of government and individuals started immediately.

• A group of four (Helen Cronin, Mark Slater, Garry Long, and Ken Hanson) became the steering group in forming the Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail community group. Support grew, with Friends membership increasing following the holding of a rail trail public meeting in Bendigo. It was envisaged that the proposal for the trail's upgrade may be achieved within ten years, but this timeframe was soon to be shattered.
