Trains have been suspended between South Yarra and Sandringham after heavy rain caused flooding over railway lines in the Windsor and Prahran area.
Work crews have been sent to the site, but with rain continuing to fall there is no indication of when the Sandringham line will reopen.
A spokeswoman for Metro Trains said the flooding was not affecting other lines at this stage.
"The flooding is in the Prahran area and water is covering the rail head at the High Street bridge," she said. "We've got crews on site and we're currently running buses between South Yarra and Sandringham in both directions."
Sections of the Flinders Street Station underpass have also been blocked off because of flooding, but it has not affected the rail line.
The Bureau of Meteorology reports that between 20 and 40 millimetres of rain has fallen across Melbourne this morning, with 30 millimetres in the city.
