Too hot to run all train ser­vices in North East

Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

HEAT­WAVE con­di­tions with tem­per­a­tures into the early 40 de­grees have forced V/Line to re­place some of its sched­uled daily North East train ser­vices with buses.

V/Line yes­ter­day re­placed its 12.05pm and 6.02pm South­ern Cross to Al­bury train ser­vices, and its 12.45pm and 5.20pm Al­bury to South­ern Cross train ser­vices with coaches.

It is do­ing the same to­day, and at the time of go­ing to press there was a chance some week­end train ser­vices could be re­placed with coaches.

The Aus­tralian Rail Track Cor­po­ra­tion is mon­i­tor­ing the North East track on these days of ex­treme tem­per­a­tures and will im­pose speed re­stric­tions on sec­tions if and when needed.
