Train to the Ekka

Went to the Ekka today (Tuesday), some pictures as I played train hopscotch along the way, plus Ekka station.

Central




Bowen Hills




Brunswick Street


Ekka Station

I can't believe I didn't realise there was platforms on only one side. I always thought you could board trains in either direction. Granted I haven't ever caught the train to the Ekka.

Last year they were dropping off people on both sides of the tracks, maybe they only do it on busy days, Tuesday when I was there is the Ekka's quietest day.

You can clearly see two platforms in the second last photo.

Does look like it's past it's used by date, but it still works for me. If anything else, it's the trains that need updating.

About time qr updated the overall look of their EMU's. The overall shape still remains the same, while a new 'look' hasnt been implemented since the early 90's and is long overdue.
