Outback Xplorer (NSW TrainLink) - Australia

Outback Xplorer (NSW TrainLink)

The Outback Xplorer is an Australian passenger train operated by NSW TrainLink between Sydney and Broken Hill via the Main Western line.

Outback Xplorer History

CountryLink commenced operating the service in March 1996 honouring a commitment by the Carr State Government to reintroduce a rail service to Broken Hill which had lost its rail service when the Silver City Comet was replaced by a road coach service in November 1989. Although not its official name, it is known as the Outback Express.

It was initially formed of 1940s vintage locomotive hauled HUB/RUB carriages. In April 2000 the service ceased due to the condition of the carriages.

After a short break the service resumed with Xplorer railcars. Today it operates to Broken Hill on Mondays, returning on Tuesdays.
