V/Line cancels after train derailment 

Buses are replacing trains on the Albury-Wodonga line today after an empty freight train derailed in Locksley, between Avenel and Euroa, yesterday afternoon.

The accident occurred about 3 kilometres north of the Locksley signed level crossing as the train travelled north towards Euroa.

Nine wagons were derailed - four of them falling off the tracks completely. 

Commuters faced lengthy delays last night, of up to 55 minutes, before train services were cancelled altogether.

Today's 7.10am and 12pm Southern Cross  to Albury service have been cancelled and will operate as road coaches.
