Covid-19 caveat but: Lovely crew. Comfortable spacious seat. Quiet carriage save for one scrofuline individual. Very smooth journey but perhaps slow by modern standards. A fabulous asset to QLD that would reap the rewards of some infrastructure investment. Non of the faff of airline travel; fast trains have come of age. Food available on board but I brought my own Perhaps a pillow and blanket too.

The friendly and helpful staff made travelling by rail very enjoyable. And even though we had some delays along the way, the team were always quick to communicate and apologetic. Comfortable seats, beautiful scenery - a great way to travel!

We wanted to experience a train trip so decided on an adventure to Bundaberg and Bargara. We were not disappointed, the staff who service Queensland Rail are second to none, they were so friendly and helpful from the platform staff to the on board staff. The train had charge stations for your electronic equipment on every seat and free wifi. We are now looking forward to our next longer rail adventure. Kudos to Queensland rail staff!

We went from Brisbane to Maryborough, return, using our concession cards, so the whole journey only cost just over $100. The train was on time, & squeaky clean, & we were temp checked prior to boarding, which was reassuring. Bags can be booked through if you are 15 mins before departure at the station. Seating was well spread out. There was soap in the toilet, but the hand air drier could be changed to the more modern version, which does not require a button press. The seats are pretty hard, but do recline. There is some in house entertainment. The earphones are a bit inadequate, but work to an extent. We did not use the buffet service, except for a couple of teas & coffees. There was only 1 herbal tea selection. There were no GF choices for snacks. This needs to be remedied. The views on this section of the route are pretty average. Close the curtains & have a nap. You’ll just need your own travelling pillow. In summary, a pleasant & reasonably fast journey if you don’t want to drive.

We enjoyed relaxing with a glass of Qld Sirromet wine with our lunch instead of driving Bundaberg to Brisbane. Really recommend taking the Tilt Train. Qld Rail are doing a great job social distancing - they kept an empty row of seats between each allocated row - unlike the airlines. The food trolley service is still operating - we enjoyed cheese & biscuits $3, wine, Bundaberg ginger beer, a meat pie $5 & sausage roll $4,and some lollies $2.50. Other passengers had a range of hot meals. Staff are very quick to clean when passengers depart their seats. Movies, tv , music is available - but I was happy to read my book and watch the views of the countryside. A very pleasant 4 hours. Thank you Qld Rail.
