Trainline is a compendium of Australia's railways. The compendium provides insights, analysis, and an understanding of the railway industry. Australia's railways are evolving, with changes both outside and within the industry. These changes include logistics, commodity flows, technology, urban patronage, and regional passenger services. The publication presents an overview and data on railway transport tasks performed; characteristics of the railways and train operators' rolling stock that runs; and aspects of railway performance, including safety, environment and reliability.
As part of Trainline 9, a new rail tonnage time series visualisation has been created. The underlying data can be downloaded on this page.
A geospatial visualisation of the rail tonnages times series is now also available. These visualisations show gross tonnes on parts of the interstate Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) and Arc Infrastructure networks. The volumes are shown across a number of segments by direction. The data is taken from the BITRE Trainline series.
