My impression was it was having a test run after maintenance. There was plenty of fresh paint smell and some gleaming timber and chrome. Flooring had been renewed in some cars. The car roofs were clean and there was fresh paint on some of the running gear.

Pretty sure that's a PCUV Track Geometry recording wagon. QR also uses on on the Mt Isa Line, usually attached to the Inlander.
