I tried booking a trip for Feb but the online booking only allows one option which is bus partway. The NSW website only talks about planned stoppages in part of January but is there some reason through trains are not running in Feb?Doesn't seem like it to me.
XPT has been missing from Brisbane the last few days.!!!!
"NSW TrainLink have been advised of potential industrial action being undertaken by rail unions, customers are advised to reconfirm travel arrangements for the period of the 28th to the 30th of January. Customers are advised to defer travel arrangements."
I tried a one way southbound journey on Fri Feb 23 for daytime. It shows Brisbane to Central and times of 0455 to 2010 but also has the comment of "Trackwork and/or service alerts for this journey". Nowhere does it expand on what that last sentence means. When you search the website for service alerts it really only has anything cropping up in the next week.
The whole purpose of the trip is to see the whole line and I'd sooner not travel if part of it was on a bus.
Wasn't sure if anyone knew what was happening up that way.
