I love a train ride!

I am taking The Overland from Melbourne to Adelaide Thursday, a 828 kilometre trip, about 500 miles. These two capitals are almost twice the distance as the Eurostar which is 495km, just over 308 miles. The Overland takes about nine hours to do its journey and Europstra 2.25 hours!

The train started originated as the Intercolonial Express when the Victorian Railways Western Line was extended to the South Australian Railways line at Serviceton on the state's borders. In 1887 it became the "Adelaide Express"[1] and  in 1926 The Overland.
