Quote from: Tramwayjohn on February 13, 2020, 18:22:48 PMQueensland Rail ruined the WESTLANDER and the INLANDER by removing sleeping and dining cars. The answer would be to convert an existing sitting car into a RAIL BED car and to use one of the FIVE L class dining cars that have a counter cut into the kitchen. Thus allowing ONE staff member to operate that service. I will never sit up on an overnight train, as I feel many would agree. The RAIL BED concept would correct that problem. Sleeping berths are provided to the train crew, whilst passengers are required to sit up all night or lay on the floor!
QuoteQR ruined the westlander by never upgrading the line and allowing what is a fairly short service to go on for 17 hours. When in reality it could be done in 7 hours easily.
In those days the Westlander also carried some fast freight. Cost effective, reliable service. https://t.co/6CJO0yeuLq— RAIL_BoT_Forum (@railbotforum) July 2, 2021
