And why is the date of the cancellation 11 Nov? I thought Bathurst was on in another couple of weeks in October.

Well "us", given the race is on 11 October, as advertised on Channel One, I would suggest Google and the NSW TrainLink website would be your friend.

They didn't run the Bathurst special last year either. So I guess it's gone for good. It had been running for quite a few years up until 2013, wonder why it stopped?

When I worked the train, I remember vaguely it was part of some sort of sponsorship deal. My suspicions are that the sponser has finished the deal. Could have been supercheap auto, but memory is too hazy to say with any conviction.

It was not cancelled as it never exsisted in the first place for 2015
The last 'special' train for Bathurst was 2013 called "King of the Mountain Express"

(and there is no race on 11 November)

I tried to book a ticket.
Yes; I know the 11 Nov is a typo. I meant 11 Oct
