The Ipswich line extends to the south-western suburbs of Brisbane. It forms part of the line extending to Toowoomba, Charleville and beyond. Ipswich was connected to Brisbane with the opening of the Albert Bridge across the Brisbane River near Indooroopilly in 1876. There are four tracks between Central and Darra, which is the junction for the Springfield line, and two tracks between Darra and Ipswich. The section between Roma Street and Darra was the first railway to be electrified in Queensland, with electrification being completed in 1979. Trains on the Ipswich line stop at all stations. Services from Ipswich typically extend to Caboolture after travelling through the city. The line is combined in timetables with the Rosewood line.
