Central Victorian councillors are continuing their push for passenger rail services between Bendigo and Geelong, via Ballarat, despite doubts about the cost of the project.
The Victorian Government is spending $2 million on a train feasibility study, which is being championed by the Central Goldfields Shire.
A report to tonight's shire meeting says the Department of Transport has indicated that the high cost of the service means it is unlikely to be delivered in financially tough times.
Cr Chris Meddows-Taylor says there is an opportunity to further develop the Maryborough to Melbourne service, which resumed operation two years ago.
"We think there's some real possibilities both long-term, we'd love to see the passenger rail go between those three cities, but short-term we can get some improvements done, some enhancements which don't involve a huge amount of capital work needed to get the passenger train connecting the three cities," he said.
