What has the passenger loading been like? Are all the seats occupied during peak periods?

Averaging around 18,000 per day and fairly steady.

Apart from the trains, "peak" is actually a plateau from 7am-7pm down here so you generally won't see sardine-like loadings.

That's 18,000 per day as well, not just per weekday.  The weekday average would no doubt be higher.

QR patronage is something like 170,000 per day and not growing. 

I'd say it has the potential to easily outstrip any individual line on the rail system, and probably several combined.

Imagine how much better pax loadings would be on the entire SEQ public transport network if the fare system was sorted ...
