Rail services have been delayed after a man was struck by a train in Melbourne's west, police said.
The Queensland man, in his 20s, was struck by an empty V/Line train heading for Melbourne from Geelong at South Kensington station about 8.15.
He was taken to Royal Melbourne Hospital, where he is fighting for his life in a critical condition.
A police spokeswoman said the man appeared to have attempted suicide by jumping off a train platform.
The train driver was immediately relieved from duty and given counselling.
V/Line spokesman James Kelly said people should expect hour-long delays. Trains will start running from Geelong to Melbourne again shortly, but not in the other direction.
''We've had some major delays to our Geelong trains but we're hoping things to return will turn back to normal shortly,'' he said.
Metro suspended its Werribee and Williamstown lines but have since resumed normal services.
