Does the train reverse at Townsville?

Very nice. They might "warm to the station" even more if they could get a train to Echuca for a day-trip during the week, rather than only on weekends.

Not Balmoral or Kilmore.

Balmoral is an interesting choice. My 1960s WTT shows that Down trains from Horsham to Hamilton, with (naturally) up trains the reverse. There was no change of direction the ...
