    Great Southern Railway is expecting the Ghan service between Darwin and Alice Springs to carry 400 fewer passengers each week this dry season because of last year's crash...

    I didn't know they'd had a crash.

    I travelled from SYD-PER on the Indian Pacific about four weeks after the crash in 1999 which killed 9(?) people. The train had also been in an accident on the Nullabour a few months prior to that. Loads still seemed good and the train was fairly full (in First Class where I was anyway, don't know what it was like down the back). I'd be supprised if this latest crash had a major impact on passenger numbers.

    Getting a bit overdramatic there I think!

    The issue is more that the rolling stock is not available to cart the people (as it is in need of being fixed), rather than bookings decling.
