That is interesting.
Perhaps going to add non-rail to its product suite?

Brisbane Roma St SG logistics will be interesting.

Journey Beyond Group is the organisation that runs Great Southern Rail now. They’ve already got a bunch of non-rail products (like the Rottnest Express ferry). Perhaps they’re just retiring the Great Southern Rail brand to make a clear break from when Serco ran the company. It also reduces confusion between the company trading name and the new train service.

Roma St has only one SG platform that has a limited length. If the train won't fit then it will have to be split at Acacia Ridge Freight Terminal or be run to the stop blocks and a second loco added to the rear for the outward movement.

Option 2 of this would be easier right?  PN could bring in a shunter from Acacia Ridge?

I'm not surprised they have more off train events which include meals. The crew on the Indian Pacific in 2014 had a huge task providing wonderful meals all prepared, served and then cleaned up on the train.  It's nice to be the customer with everything served so well but imagine after the clean up there would be minimal time to the next meal.

I thought that since Platform 1 went to buses, Platforms 2 & 3 were both SG? Adding locos to the rear at AR shouldn't be an issue if required.
