Hmm, double daily SYD-BNE. + Grafton trains.  About the same as current except for Casino-Bne.

Beware of government's claiming, with every new generation train bought, that the rolling stock is 'capable of travelling between the coasts and Brisbane in about an hour.'  The statement is correct, because pollies don't lie, but the objective is not possible, due to the poor track and alignment.  Always interesting to compare old timetables with new.  Every time the government promises 'better' train services to the SC, it results in a slightly longer travel time.
