Legislation in NSW that curbs the use of rail corridors for activites other than train use are changing, with a cycle and walking path to be installed between Rosewood and Turrumburra on an unused section of rail track. A single track line between Picton and Mittagong will be reinstated for use by heritage trains from the NSW Rail Museum, as well as a walking and cycling track alongside the same stretch the track.
