TRAIN PAIN: Eight services on Albury line have been cancelled this week.

The operator has confirmed eight scheduled services have been cancelled since Sunday and replaced by buses.

Two Albury trains had to replaced on Sunday due to a signal fault on the ARTC network, which then caused a fault to a V/Line train approaching the area.

The train continued its journey at reduced speed and returned to Melbourne for repairs, but it had flow-on effects with cancellations and bus replacements on Monday and Tuesday.

A separate Albury-bound train was cancelled on Tuesday due to maintenance requirements and on Wednesday morning an Albury to Southern Cross service originated at Benalla station due to a fatality involving a freight train at Wangaratta.

“We sincerely apologise to Albury line passengers for disruptions caused by unplanned service changes this week,” a V/Line spokesperson said.
