RAIL TIMETABLES
There has been no regularly scheduled passenger services operating in Tasmania since 1976 apart from those operated by the various tourist lines and tours operated by ARHS Tasmanian Division. During 2002 the City of Burnie instigated a commuter service to run weekly between Burnie, Wynyard, Devonport and Wiltshire Junction using a pair of DP class railcars purchased from Classic Rail Tours. The status of this service is currently unknown.
