Trainline 3 is a collaborative compendium between the Australasian Railway Association (ARA) and BITRE, providing insights, analysis, and an understanding of the Australian freight and passenger railway industry.

Australia's railways are evolving due to factors outside and within the industry. These factors include changes in bulk and non-bulk logistics, commodity flows, technology, urban rail patronage, and regional passenger services. The publication presents an overview and data illustrating these changes in terms of rail tasks performed; characteristics of the railways networks; train operators' rolling stock; and aspects of railway performance, including safety, environment and reliability.
