Baggage for Trains

Post by watson » Tue Oct 15, 2019 4:13 pm

I have 3 bags with me, the biggest is 73×48×34 and is about 20/23kg I'm not sure, I have a backpack and a 5kg other bag
Is that a problem for a brisbane/sydney train ticket?

Thank you

Here's a link to the luggage conditions for travel on NSW Trainlink trains such as that between Brisbane and Sydney. ... -trainlink

Here's the relevant section:

Each seat booked is permitted two items of large and/or heavy luggage that is sufficiently secured and protected.
Each item must weigh between 5-20kg and be no larger than 60cm high x 70cm long x 50cm wide. Items weighing less than 5kg cannot be checked in.
So, you will need to ensure that the longest dimension of the largest bag is no more than 70cm.

I hope this helps
