Did you intend to say 35 carriages?
Is that some kind of record?
Yes there were 35 carriages in the consist, 1AD8's consist has been between 29 and 35 most sundays during the past two months.
aAs for a record, No, a quick
glance through my notes shows the highest recorded consist I have noted as 37 in March 2010, but one return (*DA8 )consist was larger after the Ban Ban Level Crossing incident a few years ago, when the regular Ghan also bought back the damaged consist and a number of flat cars with damaged bogies.
