I always wonder at the lack of real news. Lots left to speculation and an unconfirmed police accusation that they were investigating for malicious intent and then nothing. Do news reporters actually ever follow up on real stories of just the fake news reports?

Don't think so.  For anything in the media, Turn off the sound and watch the action.
 
I have yet to see a news media written report match up with observed reality for any event I was involved in or of which I had any form of first hand knowledge. I would exclude formal reports, but not even certain how consistently true that is.  Usually, the NTSB reports seem to be both thorough and accurate, but I felt that the NTSB report on one event of which I had knowledge was not a thorough in one area as it should have been and that this oversight  affected their conclusion.

I sincerely hope that rumor is not true.

I have been trying to confirm this rumour since I got back from the north Island.

That's a mistake.  Every couple of years some guy sees the cost of operations and gets in his head to dump it and pass the cost onto the truckers doing the hauling thus making him look good to the shareholders as a major cost savings.  And everytime they do a cost analysis study it proves each time the rail operations to be cheaper and getting more logs to Beaver Cove than any trucks could do.  Somebody finally got their way.
