Why was there no information that the 7:44am train from Gaythorne to Beenleigh wasn’t running? Some of us have to go to work on weekends too!

Hello Sidonie, thank you for getting in touch this morning. This train had experienced a mechanical issue at Mitchelton station and had to be terminated there. Unfortunately we were not notified in time to advise customers. I apologise for the inconvenience.

if translink had of relayed that issue even 15 minutes after the train was cancelled which was a more than adequate timeframe she could have saved 10 mins by jumping on the 390 if heading to the city.

This sh%t is appalling stuff.  More the reason that Queensland Rail MUST take over their own direct service disruption notifications.

^ 'Due to a freight operator's service'? Does that mean the passenger train was held while a freight train went through on the single track? Or was the freight train in front of the GympieLander a bit too slow or too long to be parked on a passing loop? Longer freight trains are being run on the NCL now. Maybe some thought should be given to joining up a couple of passing loops so there is a good length of duplicated track for trains to pass or overtake 'at speed' rather than have one train stop while another passes. A freight train takes up to five kilometres to work its way up to optimal speed from a standing start.

I suppose the reasons, 'due to freight operator's service' means that QR won't include this delays in its on-time running performance assessments because QR could argue it is not directly responsible for the late arrival into Brisbane.

Or maybe they should just bite the bullet and finally finish the duplication to Nambour...  >:(

All the more reason to establishing extended and/or new passing loops from Landsborough North (in addition to relocating some of the stations to their proposed locations on a duplicated Landsborough to Nambour alignment), in combination with finishing the Beerburrum-Landsborough re-alignment and duplication

On this train - it lost time at Coomera due to a shutdown.  Surprised they bothered seeing it was basically on time again by the time it got to the city.

Late trains can be a problem on the Airport spur due to single track.

So I got off my train and wow the bus has left without us, were all stranded in Landsborough as there are no other trains or buses. This is unacceptable. The bus needs to wait for the train, it knows alot of people get on. I have to wait and hour and a half. Please fix this it's unacceptable. And while I'm at it the bus at USC always leaves 10 minutes early. If the Translink app says it doesn't leave till a certain time, I shouldn't. I want my trip reimbursed, if I knew the bus was going to leave us I would have driven. No happy!!!!

Quote
TransLink the 615. I caught the train from Caboolture at 12:28 and was supposed to connect to the 615 bus at Landsborough station. The train was roughly 5 minutes behind and when we arrived no bus. And there is no other buses or trains I could catch to work around it. Nothing until 2:30.

Quote
I'm stuck here since 1:05pm. At least 10 other people, most of them University students with classes. Each class is roughly $120, so that's what they're missing out on. Down the drain because the bus didn't wait for the train.

Quote
If I knew the bus was gone I would have caught the train to Nambour and caught a bus from there. But there's no warning. There has to be a better way

The old people are very confused. I can't give them answers because I don't know what's going on.

Yet another rail to bus connection problem

Greetings,

Something really needs to be done with the constant failure of rail to bus, and bus to rail connections.  RAIL Back On Track has raised this a number of times with TransLink but nothing appears to be happening to sort it.

The latest sad example:

Its a shame because it looked like they were getting the communication sorted......guess not......that university is a major trip generator no matter what time of the day.......its not uncommon to see 20+ students jumping off the train straight onto that bus route.
This bus-rail connection needs to maintained 100% to the rail frequency......no excuses...

Landsborough is the top priority for countdown clocks, telling the bus drivers how far away the trains are from the station.
There is an audible sigh sometimes when a train from Brisbane passes through the level crossing
immediately south of Landsborough Station and the bus people are hoping will take them to
Caloundra/Maroochydore/USC is sitting behind the boom gates, having left the station moments before.
