A Warrnambool tourism operator expects disruptions to train services will deter visitors to the region.
The Geelong line was crippled by a signal failure on Tuesday.
Services on the line were also disrupted last week.
Darren Harris, who owns holiday villas and is a board member of Commerce Warrnambool, says tourists are put off using the services because of disruptions.
"The quality of the carriages aren't up to scratch, the reliability of the train service is certainly not up to scratch and that will have an impact on people visiting our city," he said.
"So it's really important that our local council, State Government and Federal Government look at what they can do to address the issue, because it really is not good enough.
"Our rail system gets used a lot by handicapped people, the elderly, students, single mothers and they're going to want to use public transport that's reliable, they can't be left there standing for an hour, two hours around platforms ... other than what it does to the tourism in our city, it's not good enough for the people who really need it and rely on it."
Electricians have replaced a section of wiring and are confident there will not be any more disruptions to Geelong's services in the near future.
