Remarks: The final regular mixed train operating down-under was the Bandilander. The QR Dirranbandi Mail, running overnight between Brisbane and Dirranbandi 580 km to the south west. Then returning the following day, but oddly in the last years of operation it did not go all the way back to Brisbane. Passengers got to ride trad old wooden QR cars, including a sleeper. Sadly the Bandilander is gone to history as is also the 1720 class unit 1728. Most of these 1000 hp untis continue to do battle in Queensland.
