CityTrain Box[edit]

The majority of the lines in the "citytrain box" were the wrong way round (they had, for example, Brunswick St as the preceding station on the northern lines, and the southern lines as the next; whilst Brunswick St has Central as the preceding, and Bowen Hills, heading north, as the next). So I switched them all around. FiggyBee 07:24, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

Partial re-write and restructure[edit]

I thought the article was a bit messy and thought it could be structured like the Sydney Central railway station. In addition, I thought the introduction "ie Central Station is a station in Brisbane, it is in Zone 1 of Translink system etc".. should be at the top and consistent with the other railway articles. I also updated the platform information and added Rosewood since a few peak-hr services continue to Rosewood.

To conclude, I also added notes in "platform info" that most Rosewood services depart from Ipswich and additional off-peak Nambour bus and train services depart from Caboolture. -- Arnzy | Talk 15:13, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

Photos Gallery[edit]

I thought it would be good to add a Photo gallery to this article & also some other stations. good idea or not? Qld matt 11:09, 16 September 2006 (UTC)


Is the station really "in front of the Sofital Hotel"? Last time I was in Briz it was the Sheraton Hotel. There is a chain called Sofitel. Thortful 11:54, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes. The Sheraton is now the Sofitel, I stayed there recently. FiggyBee 23:37, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

left luggage[edit]

can I leave my suitcase at the central station while looking around Brisbane for the day



As far as I recall, there are lockers at both Central and Roma St - however, a lot of lockers have been removed from transport facilities recently for security reasons. I'd suggest you ring QR on 131617 (within Australia) to check. FiggyBee 12:59, 25 September 2006 (UTC)


I have added coordinates (using the {{coor title dms}} tag.

Should the {{coor at dms}} tag be used as part of the infobox template (like Pittsburgh International Airport and Template:Airport infobox) ? --RobBrisbane 23:48, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

tl conecting routes[edit]

mattman (talk) 22:27, 16 April 2009 (UTC)i am considering puting the translink coneckting routes in what do you think ?

No need for duplication. Already covered by Adelaide Street Bus Mall, Brisbane and King George Square Busway Station, Brisbane. --Arnzy (talk · contribs) 08:19, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Changing look of article.[edit]

Should we cahnge the top box to look like Sydneys central stations box? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:58, 1 November 2009 (UTC)

Font / background colour problems[edit]

Yellow on white and white on yellow just does not work well. This page has both of those - and so do many other Brisbane metro articles, I presume. The table in Central_railway_station,_Brisbane#Services_by_platform has it right: black on yellow works very well. Please, remember the readers and format your articles so they have a chance of reading them. Please consider attending to this issue in all Brisbane metro articles which have the same problem. --Tagishsimon (talk) 00:20, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
