The last time I caught a country train was to Murchison East and I then had to transfer to a V Line coach. The coach wasn't bad, but the train was beautifully comfortable. The seats were very good, the bathrooms clean and the train was near to silent. Just a faint rattle came from a light cover, just to assure you that you were moving as you nodded off. Long distance train travel may take longer and often be more expensive, but I consider that it is a luxurious way to travel. The train would have been like this one.
