North East Line
Services are delayed due to an incident requiring emergency services at Essendon. Albury line services are not affected 

Due to the forecast temperatures we are expecting to run to an Extreme Heat Timetable on

Tuesday 12 March 2024

Bendigo (Partial), Swan Hill (Partial) and Echuca/Moama (Partial) lines

During the summer months, parts of V/Line’s network can be subject to extremely hot temperatures and we take extra precautions to make sure our train services run safely.

Trains that usually travel at up to 160km/h need to slow down to 90km/h or less because steel tracks expand in the heat.

On these days, affected lines will run to an Extreme Heat Timetable. This means journey times may be extended by a few minutes, and some services will be replaced by air-conditioned coaches for all or part of the journey.
