Here are some pictures from the long trip from Perth to Sydney by train. Indie (the name under which I will refer to Indian Pacific from now on) rolled out of East Perth train station on Wednesday at 11h55 in the morning, arriving at Sydney Central train station on Saturday afternoon at 14h15.
Perth’s Eastern train station is the main connection between urban trains and the lines that head into outer Western Australia. Here you can see the Indian Pacific sitting in the station, preparing for its 4352 kilometer journey.
Just in case you would be wondering where they got the name “nullarbor” from. This is the view you get for a full day on the train. Maybe it would be a good idea to open up an exclusive resort here, which would only be accessible by train. Call it the NullarBAR and give people the opportunity to rest for a day or two while travelling on the Indian Pacific and it could perhaps even work out.
