I was running a train towards Dandenong and I think, onto Cranbourne, when as I approached Springvale Road level crossing, I saw a bus ahead crawl all the way across the tracks and stop, I was on an 80 Kph track, but I immediately slowed my Commeng train down and stopped short of the crossing, by the time I stopped, the bus moved off the track, but was still foul of the main line.
I rang the signalman at Springvale, when he answered, I knew who it was, I said, "Don't panic Chris, but there is a bus blocking my way." he said, "Oh Sh;;;" I said it's ok, just get him to move off a bit further. Chris hung up and bolted out the door to talk to him.
Unfortunately, I think some coppers on the platform saw what was happening and went down to speak to him, I hope they only gave him a warning.
The level crossing is now gone, the line goes underneath the roadway, on the left of the platform, basically where the bus is now.
