I am thinking about taking the Qld Tilt Train from Brisbane to Rocky for Xmas this year - and I have a 2 year old in tow.... I understand she will be able to travel for free (if she is on my lap), but does anyone have any experience with this in a practical sense? I think it's about a 7.5 hour trip; one leaves at 11 am, arriving at 6.30 pm, and another leaves at 4.55 pm, arriving at 12.30 am. My daughter usually has her sleep any time between 11 and 12 - usually sleeps for around 11.5 hours.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how successful this might be? Any experiences with train travel with toddlers? The Tilt Train doesn't have a club car where we can go and hang out, but of course there is the attraction of walking up and down the train.
Oh - I will also be 8 months pregnant!!
