V/Line via the Brooklyn goods lines

On 24 October 2007, the normal route for trains through Yarraville was closed due to a fatality. The down Geelong train I was travelling on was diverted via the freight lines, through the Bunbury Street tunnel, Tottenham Yard, Brooklyn, and the back of Newport.

Our V/Line service stopped at Bunbury Street Junction at 1826
