The 2 images below are of one of Queensland Railís two sets of electric Tilt Trains taken at Roma Street Station, Brisbane, in November 1998 just before they went into service. The Tilt Trains have an operating speed of 160km/h, but are capable of 210km/h and are the record holders for the highest rail speed in Australia Ė and that of course in 3ft 6in/1067mm gauge! The Interurban Multiple Unit (IMU) No103 seen parked on the line next to the Tilt Train has an operating speed of 140km/h (only where track conditions permit of course) and is part of the fleet that runs from Brisbane Airport to the Gold Coast, 85km south-east of Brisbane.
