Rollingstock expansion program - now 65 six car trains

Greetings,

RAIL Back On Track welcomes today's announcement of the further committment by the Queensland Government to build another 45 six car trains in addition to the 20 six car trains already committed (1). These trains will be needed to be in place by 2032.

With this next generation of trains all efforts should be made to equip these trains with automatic ramps/retractable steps (2).  Rolling stock has such a long life time, we need to ensure the tender specifications have not only community expectations of now at front of mind but also the future horizons of 2032.

Exciting news, new trains for Queensland built in Queensland.

Robert Dow
