Hi All,The story is a tad misleading in respect to frequency, the title says "Great Southern Rail to halve services on Indian Pacific, The Ghan".
Looks like GSR is cutting Indian Pacific and Ghan services again this morning...
Amazing - didn't think it was possible to cut them back any more than twice a week, but only once a week...wow.
Yet further down it states "GSR currently operates 13 to 14 double-weekly services from Adelaide to Darwin during the Dry Season"
The fact is currently the Ghan and IP only run once a week with the second service running only during the peak season (May to August for the Ghan and September to November for the IP)
And the Ghan currently only runs once a fortnight during the northern "Wet Season" (December and January)
And it should be noted the GSR CEO did say that the current weekly trains could be "lengthened to cater for increased demand"
