Great Southern train from Adelaide to Brisbane: Australia's new luxury train unveiled

It's getting on for a century since Australia's most famous train, The Ghan – originally known as the Afghan Express after the 19th-century Muslim cameleers who helped pioneer Australia's red interior – first puffed north from Adelaide on its inaugural journey to Alice Springs.

Great Southern Rail will find it difficult to compete with NSW Trainlink services in the eastern states which runs trains regularly between the east coast capital cities and NSW Trainlink trains are reasonably priced too

NSW TrainLink is a different market to what GSR is in. I have very rarely seen any tourists on the XPT services as the seats are not very comfortable, the trains are old and the food is quite average. This service will have a more luxury and tourism aspect to the service.
