      News Item: from Chapman Valley Pioneers

      As the years progressed, Yuna pioneers did like­wise, and the railway line from Geraldton to Naraling gradually extended to Yuna in 1913. This was a wonderful advancement for Yuna, there were two trains, mixed freight and passenger, operating between Geraidton and Yuna from 2 p.m. each Thursday, until after midnight on Fnday.
      However the Mail service was continued twice weekly by road, (Horse and Cart) until after the 1924 days. This mail service was very important for Yuna pioneers. In addition to mail, the mail man carried bread, general stores replacement parts for machines and in particular, urgent medicine parcels for sick people. After a very early start, he reached Yuna in one day, with one or two changes of horses, returning early next day. I cannot recall all these early mail men to Yuna, but I am sure, that we will remember our two old mailmen Jack Vincent, and Steve Fripp.
