Cairns Tilt Train Derailment - Background - The Service

The Service

When introduced, the Cairns Tilt Train cut the travel time between Brisbane and Cairns by seven hours compared to existing services, and the timetable was formulated in such a way that it offered a daylight service between Mackay and Cairns so as to not directly compete with its electric equivalent to Rockhampton. Services were three times a week, departing Roma Street railway station, Brisbane on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:25 pm, arriving Cairns railway station Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 7:20 pm; returning from Cairns on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 8:15 am, arriving Brisbane at 9:10 am on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Famous quotes containing the word service:

    We have in the service the scum of the earth as common soldiers.
    Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke Wellington (1769–1852)

    The ruin of the human heart is self-interest, which the American merchant calls self-service. We have become a self- service populace, and all our specious comforts—the automatic elevator, the escalator, the cafeteria—are depriving us of volition and moral and physical energy.
    Edward Dahlberg (1900–1977)
