That, and there weren't actually any economy seats in the old style CTT. All business class only. Never had a ride in one, so can't say how good or bad they were, although new seats will generally sof ...

Luckily for me, i'll be in Sydney that day! Unfortunately though, I won't have enough time to do the trip, but will hopefully be able to see it along the way somewhere!

Enjoy the trip!

No worries mate. I believe the new set is back in Maryborough at the moment on testing.

Problems with pathing south of Acacia Ridge during the evening/night, by what I have heard.

Best of luck with the new role Stuart! Your assistance has been greatly appreciated!

The last Sunlander (with Queenslander Class) will run south out of Cairns and in to Brisbane at New Years. (Can't remember if it departs Cairns on NYE or arrives Brisbane NYE).

Citytrain doesn't make a profit, as such. QR may see a small profit from it, but that's only due to the subsidies coming in from the Government/Translink to run the service. If these subsidies were to ...

Yeah, likely be the Tiltlander, one of the RTT sets is out for maintenance at the moment.

Happens all the time. Offenders do not get the chance to ride my train when they do it.

Platform 4 will be in use for several trains in the morning and afternoon peak, in particular, once the new timetables come in to effect on Monday, 20th January.

Don't hold your breath, it will be a while. Never say never, but it's not happening anytime soon. Plus, currently out depots are based on seniority, so you won't get in and get Robina straight away, i ...

Ok, 2 shunts per trip. I just assumed they would do the exhibition loop and only do the one shunt at Mitchelton.

There are a couple BMACC locos at the Port, which will be moved in the next few days, so that's probably why the extra 83 was on the train.

You are lucky to see more than one container train go there per week (to Fisherman Islands/Port of Brisbane).

Well, actually, there are generally one to two container trains to the P ...
