How do you spell "rail trail" anyway? (Does anyone care?)

Three years ago, the Railtrails Australia committee discussed how to spell "rail trail". You might suggest that there are more important things to discuss, but we needed a consistent spelling. Is it "rail trail", "railtrail" or even "rail-trail"?

At the time it was decided that we preferred it spelt as a single word after all "railway" is one word, so why not "railtrail"? It was hoped that with incrased usage this a single word spelling would increase its chances of being adopted into the dictionary.

Unfortunately we were in the minority and the "rail trail" spelling has become the defacto standard, so moving with the times we have now adopted "rail trail" as our standard spelling.
