Plenty of lines died in the heat yesterday and delays cascaded across the network.

I think 3 were fully suspended at one stage - Mernda was out between Bell and Clifton Hill which may as well have been the whole thing as given the shortage of buses, not many people were getting through at all.

Will they have resources on hand for Friday? Probably not, just brace for the worst people Sad.

Ended up using alternative transport to home last night and passing Clifton Hill there were hundreds of people stranded around the station many crossing the road (Hoddle Street) looking at how to get home. The bus stop on the western side had hundreds waiting for a bus replacement which had not arrived.  This was around the 17:45 mark.

How is it we can find $17b for a road being NEL but we cannot reduce risk for the metro train network which on my line seems to be losing passengers?

@bevans

Last nights disruption was caused by a heat related track fault. No government is going to gold plate infrastructure so it can hold up in extreme temperatures we might get for a handful of days a year.

And that $17B freeway will have plenty of accidents causing delays for hundreds over the next decade.

Long replacement bus queues were reported at Caulfield this morning. Sounds as though there are ample numbers of buses on the road, but running at uneven intervals due to heavy traffic congestion.

A V/Line train broke down at Broadmeadows killing the Craigieburn line beyond Essendon.

Passing through Flinders 5pm on the 30/1/20, diverted through Platform 2 after a long wait, for the driver to tell us a train's bogie had caught on fire on platform 1. Sure enough there was an Xtrap sitting there with no pax around it. No smoke or firefighters there, so it was out by then.

No mention on twitter about it, but everything was running a bit slow that night.

Someone decided to jump off a bridge at Camberwell this morning. Typical Lilydale and Belgrave lines these days, bustitution almost every single weekend, then trains inexplicably terminating at Burnley last night, and now this.
