Why are New South Welshmen more anti-rail trail than other states?

Now you say Farmers are Not Tourist inclined to open these Corridors but I think its more a case of keeping People off their Land as you cannot always 'see' clearly where the corridor is and it may be necessary where a Tourist would have to use the Farmers land because the Corridor is impassable for any reason.

That has been the main line of complaints by farmers for the lines. They are more concerned about people wondering onto their land and leaving their rubbish behind.

A rail trail could have fences installed either side by the Governement (be it State of Local depending who is taking responsibility of the rail trail) but it would be an expensive excercise that even though the farmer may not own the land, I would not expect them to be forced to pay for fencing he/she didn't need before.

The RT boundary needs to marked. So I support the farmers there. If farmers are responsible for fencing on roads, so they should be for rail lines. Or at least the govt builds and the farmers maintain.

Accessing the farmland without permission is illegal and this can also happen from roads. Anyone doing so should be prosecuted regardless of the condition of the RT.

Again rather than guessing what will happen, should we not at least compare with other locations?
