Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A Federal Government report is expected to recommend freight operators contribute to the cost of keeping grain lines open in New South Wales.
The Government invested $3 million on a special task force to get grain exports back on track in NSW.
The release of its report is imminent.
It is expected to recommend a user-pay system where grain freight operators contribute to the cost of rail line maintenance.
Only last week the Government reopened the Moree to Weemelah line in the state's north-west, imposing a surcharge of $1 per tonne.
The future of about 15 other branch lines are still at stake, including five in the central west near Cowra and one further north near Warren.
NSW Transport Minister David Campbell says some lines will remain out of action until financial arrangements to reopen them can be made.
