Comeng pushing a Sprinter, July 2011

On the morning of July 27, 2011 an up Geelong service operated by Sprinter 7021 ran out of fuel at Footscray station. The passengers were taken off the train, then a 6-car Comeng set led by 372M pushed the Sprinter to Flinders Street Station. One crew were in the front of the disabled Sprinter to sight the signals and controled the brakes for the combined train, while a second crew drove the Comeng.

Caught me by surprise: trailing view of the combined consist passing through North Melbourne station
