Need expired timetables.
« on: August 31, 2016, 12:18:43 PM »
G'day Rail Back on Track.

I'm working on a research project for my university degree on transport accessibility in Brisbane. For this project I need timetables that were applicable for 2014 to assess service levels. While a majority of the time tables available on translink's site were valid in 2014, the Ipswich and Springfield timetables were updated for 2016. Although I haven't yet gone through the bus and ferry time tables thoroughly, it is likely that some of them will also be updated beyond 2014.

I was wondering if anyone here happened to know of a source for archived translink timetables? I've contacted translink already and unfortunately it seems that they either do not keep expired timetables on file or are not able to release them (seems a bit of a poor effort but whatever). The wayback machine isn't hugely helpful either, as I cannot download the time tables from there and extracting the data from the webpages themselves is impractical.

If  you happen to  have a pdf copy of the Ipswich and Springfield line timetables from 2014, please send them my way. If you happen to know a reliable source for expired timetables, please let me know.

If it helps, I believe the only change to the Ipswich/Springfield timetable between 2014 and now (ie: the 2016 version) was the recent addition of the 5.09am service from Springfield Central to the City.
All opinions stated are my own and do not reflect those held by my employer.

When was the 3 car afternoon springfield to nambour added, Officially express but running on reds until northgate?
 
Also the ferny grove/doomben/airport/shorncliffe/cleveland/beenleigh and GC lines timetables were very different in 2014. 

Use the way back machine and you can find older timetables.

According to that, the weird 3 car springfield to nambour wasn't present as of 20 may 2014.

G'day!

Worked fine for me.  I have uploaded it to http://backontrack.org/docs/tt/140120-springfield.pdf

You're welcome!

Thanks Ozbob, but it did eventually load for me, turns out it was just my net being a bit of a pain.

Looks like you guys are right about there being just 1 additional service added.

If it helps the Springfield timetable was a direct extension of the superseded Richlands timetable from 2011. No new services were added, the existing trips were extended to Springfield Central. It's only the additional inbound early morning service added in more recent times.
