B Series trains ran on the Armadale/Thornlie line until the Mandurah line opened, didn’t they (back when Armadale ran through to Joondalup)? How did they manage?

The Australind is 70 with special events on in Boyanup this Sunday.

November 24, 1947 saw the first journey of the Australind train, taking passengers from Perth to Bunbury. Thus, began a service that has provided a mode of transport between the South West and Perth for the past 70 years.

The original train was superseded in 1987 by the 'train that thinks it's a plane' heralding a new era of travel.

No they didn't. I believe they were first regularly introduced to the Whitfords Shuttle while A-series continued to operate the through-service. Then the Joondalup Line was truncated at Perth Station and B-series became a regular appearance on both the Whitfords Shuttle and full line service. This followed by the opening of Perth Underground and (then) Esplanade, then eventually opening of the Mandurah line.

it makes me wonder if all the dreams I have about flying trains are some sort of repressed early childhood memory of seeing that poster

I bet there isnít much speed difference between the original Australind and what we have now! Not much advancement in 70 years (and certainly not at the speed of a plane!!).

Silk Air is a premium airline operating tourist routes so it will be on the higher side I suspect but hopefully under $700 return, They fly to Cairns which is a lot further for $1000 return. You get return deals to Broome at about $500 from Perth sometimes a bit less. If its $700 I suspect a lot of Broome people would be attracted to the option and also with onward cheaper connections to Thailand, Penang and Vietnam.

Broome can become a Hub for SE Asia. Connections to Perth and the Eastern States!

B series on the heritage lines stills happens ever so often when it suits them operationally, I see it being mentioned occasionally on a foamer group that I read. They only ever run on those lines as a single 3-car unit though.

Found this random photo quickly on Google, B series at Thornlie in passenger service (2014):

On the Midland Line at the beginning of the year due to Stadium Station works blocking access to Claisebrook Depot.
