An electricity problem is causing major delays on the Frankston train line.Connex says the electricity supply is too weak to power the trains. Spokesman John Rees says some carriages are blocking the tracks.
"Unfortunately Siemens trains draw more power than they're getting and they've been unable to move, so other trains can't get through to move all those people," he said.
"We've tried to get buses in to replace those train services but it's a long stretch of track between Frankston and Cheltenham.
"You can't get enough buses to move that many people, unfortunately."
United Energy says the problem is to related to Connex's own system, and the company knew about it yesterday.
