Onboard food and drink

Please note

We have made small amendments to our Buffet service in line with advice from NSW Health in response to COVID-19.
The changes include:

  • Not all refreshment items may be available as shown on the menu
  • All hot food is being heated at the time of service (approximate wait time of 25-45 minutes)
  • We no longer sell items that are not pre-packaged
  • We will no longer accept reusable cups
  • We no longer sell newspapers and magazines
  • Water fountains are no longer available on Regional trains, please bring water or purchase from the buffet
  • Physical distancing applies while waiting to be served
  • Payment is preferred by credit card or EFTPOS where possible
  • Catering items may change due to availability.

Most NSW TrainLink Regional train services include a buffet car serving drinks, snacks and hot and cold meals.

Food and drink (with the exception of water) is not permitted on coach services. For coach trips of 4 or more hours, refreshment stops are included.

Straws will no longer be available on NSW TrainLink services from 19 March 2020. If you require one, please bring your own reusable straw.

There is a buffet car on most NSW TrainLink Regional train services that offer a range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free snacks and meals. We suggest placing an order for speciality items in the buffet car as soon as you board in order to avoid disappointment.

You can bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages on board train services only. We recommend guests who suffer from allergies (such as peanut allergies) bring their own snacks or meals as we are unable to guarantee that our meals are completely allergen free.

Perishable items including meat, seafood, fruit and vegetables are not permitted as checked luggage on any NSW TrainLink Regional service.

On board staff are available to serve food and drink to any customer who is unable to leave their seat.

You can pay with cash, debit cards and credit cards. EFTPOS mobile reception can be intermittent on selected routes, so to avoid disappointment it’s advisable to carry some cash for purchases.
