Spirit of the Outback:
Changes to service offerings announced but no official details from QueenslandRail as to what changes will be made. I am assuming that twin and single sleepers will remain along with a restaurant car and a club car with sitting carriages following behind. The difference is that they will all be L series rather than a mixed consist, has anyone heard anything to the contrary?
Recently announced changes will see the removal of sleeper and dining facilities on the train. Train will be sitting cars only and there are no details as to what passengers will do for food on board.
As we all know will be gone at the end of December and replaced with the Spirit of Queensland.
Have not seen any articles regarding the future of this service but if the details of the Inlander are anything to go off I am guessing it will be the same result.
Whilst QR seems to have a number of L series carriages there are obviously not enough to provide even a Roomette on the Inlander (and possibly Westlander too). It is great to see the SOTO refurbished and I cannot wait to see the offerings provided to customers on board, it is a shame though to see the Inlander changed to a seat only service.
