Travel on the troop train comes to an end
FIVE days after leaving Winton, the Anzac troop train re-enactment made its final stop at Roma St station in Brisbane on Friday afternoon.
There were teary goodbyes as the 300 passengers and crew who climbed aboard the nine heritage carriages on Monday parted ways.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and about 300 onlookers were on hand to greet the passengers.
The train passed through Longreach, Emerald, Rockhampton, Gladstone, Maryborough and Cooroy over the past five days.
Memorials for First World War soldiers were held along the way.
The project marked 100 years since Australian soldiers stepped onto the beach at Gallipoli.
The driving force behind the project, Gladstone's Graham McVean, said the journey was better than anyone expected.
"It far exceeded our expectations," he said.
