Border V/Line passengers pushed back onto coaches after derailment

BORDER V/Line rail passengers have again been forced onto coaches after a freight train derailed in Melbourne. 

The Pacific National goods train, from Warrnambool, came off the tracks at 1.43am while entering the Port of Melbourne. 

The incident has stalled many goods deliveries into the city and caused delays to services as far as South Australia, including the Albury to Melbourne service. 

Cranes have been called to lift the train back onto the rails after its front and the first wagon came off the tracks. 

4.50PM UPDATE: A V/Line spokesman has told The Border Mail that rail services will resume this evening with the derailment having been cleared.
