Tasmania is not taking advantage of its potential rail tourism, according to Public Relations Officer for the Launceston North East Railway (LNER), Wendy McLennan.

The stoush between the planned North-East rail trail and the proposed LNER continues, with a Legislative Council hearing underway to determine the best course of action.

This comes after a State Government decision last year that would see both projects go ahead, allocating specific sections of the rail to each project.

Wendy joins Brian Carlton to talk about the Legislative Council hearing that is currently underway, and what they hope to achieve from it.
