How busy is my train?
Below is a guide to capacity on peak weekday Ballarat line trains from July 2015.

If you have flexibility in travel times, consider taking a train that's less busy for a more comfortable trip. Extra carriages were added to the 0513 Wendouree to Southern Cross and 1753 Southern Cross to Wendouree trains on 06 July. These are the latest trains delivered from Bombardier as part of a $207 million government order. As further trains arrive they will be allocated to areas of the network where they are most required.

V/Line is constantly managing patronage needs across the network and considers patronage loading when allocating carriages to scheduled services.
V/Line does not allocate carriages to a particular line or service and trains often run across multiple lines throughout the day. For example, a train may originate in Traralgon but end up in Geelong later in the day.
