THERE will be no trains between Gympie and Brisbane this weekend, as track reconditioning, maintenance and Cross River Rail survey works, inspections and cable testing are carried out.
Queensland Rail said today timetabled buses would replace trains from the first train on Saturday, February 1, to the last train on Sunday, February 2, at Bowen Hills to Doomben, Airport, Shorncliffe, Kippa-Ring and Gympie North.
These services will have a published timetable available online and at bus stops, will give customers the ability to journey plan, and will run at a higher frequency, QR said.
