Around the network in one day
« on: February 27, 2021, 12:14:12 AM »
Today, I travelled the entire QR Citytrain network. Not entirely by train (Manly-Cleveland by bus, due to track work, but I did touch on/off at every extremity—Rosewood, Springfield Central, Gympie North, Kippa-Ring, Shorncliffe, Doomben, Ferny Grove, Varsity Lakes and Cleveland. I didn't include airport line because it's not QR network.

Unfortunately, I got hit with a fixed fare touching "off" at Cleveland, because it has directional gates and thought I touched on. I've submitted an adjustment request, so we'll see what happens.

So no Springfield line, Kippa-Ring, probably Sunshine Coast finishing at Nambour and I'm guessing no Gold Coast line either? It's a bigger network now.

I did a tour of the Citytrain network Easter 2008 as part of the free travel using Go card for that time.

But I spread it over 4 days.
