History

The Beenleigh railway line opened in 1885 [cite web | title = Brisbane Suburb: Mt Gravatt - History of Mt Gravatt | publisher = ourbrisbane.com | date = 2000 | url = http://www.ourbrisbane.com/living/suburbs/mt_gravatt/history/ | accessdate = 2008-03-03 ] before being extended to Southport on the Gold Coast in 1889. With increasing popularity of the motor car, the line was closed back to Beenleigh station in 1964, however the Gold Coast line was progressively rebuilt on a new alignment from Beenleigh between 1996 and 1998.

Line guide and services

Most services stop at all stations to Roma Street railway station. The typical travel time between Beenleigh and Brisbane City is approximately 59 minutes (to Central). During weekday peak times, a few services may skip stations between Altandi and Park Road for faster travel times for commuters working in the Brisbane central business district.

Beenleigh line services typically continue as Ferny Grove line services.

Passengers for/from the Gold Coast line change at either South Bank, Yeerongpilly, Loganlea or Beenleigh; Cleveland line change at Park Road; Tennyson line at Yeerongpilly; Ipswich and Rosewood lines at Roma Street; and all other lines at Central.
