Redcliffe Peninsula Line - very POSH!

Coming soon to Kippa-Ring
In a reasonably surprise mood the Moreton Bay Rail Link / Kippa-Ring Line which will finally open in October, will be called the Redcliffe Peninsula Line. This is not surprising as not many people have ever heard of Kippa-Ring, and who wants to name a train line after a smelly fish anyway? The Redcliffe Peninsula sounds rather POSH, and BrizCommuter is sure that first class passengers will travel Port Out Starboard Home.

As Queensland Rail (QR) have obviously gone upmarket with their line naming, here is a few suggestions for renaming the rest of QR's train lines:

  • Ferny Grove Line to be renamed to Hinterland Mountain Railway  (useless fact: Keperra is the highest point on QR's CityTrain network). 
  • Caboolture Line to be renamed to Pine Rivers Odyssey.
  • Sunshine Coast Line to be renamed to Sunshine Narrow Gauge Railway.
  • Shorncliffe Line to be renamed to Trans-Swamp Express.
  • Airport Line to be renamed to Airport Limousine Line.
  • Doomben Line to be renamed to Thoroughbred Line.
  • Cleveland Line to be renamed to LotaLand Line.
  • Gold Coast Line to be renamed to Golden Bullet Express.
  • Springfield Line to be renamed to Magical Forest Railway.
  • Rosewood Line to be renamed to On The Way To Grandchester Line. 
  • Ipswich Line to be renamed to Brisbane Valley Scenic Railway.
  • Beenleigh Line to be renamed to The Line for Everyone Else.
