Melbourne to Sydney by overnight XPT train

Hi and welcome to AFF!

The cost of the sleeper cabin is $234 per person, but you need to call to book. There may be discounts if you have a Victorian or NSW pensioner concession or rail cards.

Booking is on 13 22 32.

Now replied, above.

Note that this is not a train booking site, we are a frequent flyer forum, which sometimes includes other topics, such as this thread about trains.

We can’t book, or give you availability, but if you call the number above, which is NSW trains, they’ll look after you.
 
I haven't travelled myself on a long distance NSW train since late last year, but the disruption advisory for the cancellation of last night's overnight Melbourne - Sydney train, due to the XPT having broken down a few hours earlier, caught my eye:

CLK622 Cancelled
Last updated: 6:54am Sat 13 Apr Refresh Incident activity Ongoing - Today, 7:12am
Details
Due to an operational issue CLK622 is cancelled. No alternate transport can be provided. Customers are advised to make their own travel arrangements. Customers are entitled to a refund for this journey.

It's rather blunt compared to how airlines, including even low cost airlines, handle similar disruptions.

Yes, this is a lower cost State Railway entity.

The XPT's are getting very long in the tooth, and break down fairly often (I was on one several years ago that couldn't go any further than Albury, so we were all bussed to MEL).

If you need to be somewhere at a certain time don't go NSW Trainlink (or give yourself a day or two leeway).
