This is amazing stuff! I didnt realise that there was electric staff sections on the old South Coast line, I see it exists around Woodridge, then again at Ernest Junction in and out of Southport (makes sense, as this would have likely been a busy section).... Smile

The Brisbane one departed south again at 7.40 am in 1990 and arrived at Sydney Terminal at 9.40 p.m. The Murwillumbah one returned in 1990 after a 45 minute turn around time and headed back to Sydney Terminal at 9:15pm, reaching its destination at 10.35 am. The present day timetable is at http://www.countrylink.info/timetables but that does not have the Murwillumbah one of course.

Also shown are the QLD rail connections for that era eg Capricornian.

Peter, as noted on QRIG, that link does not get you anything useful. As an aid in troubleshooting this problem I post here a screen shot of the relevant bit. Perhaps you need to have an account and be logged in? Have you tried it without being logged in to 4shared?
