Evacuating a failed V/Line train at Albion, November 2015

On November 26, 2015 a down Bendigo train failed outside Albion station, blocking the Sunbury line for hours. Eventually the V/Line train was limped into the platform at Albion, allowing passenger to wait for buses, with the suburban train behind being eventually evacuated as well

Evacuating passengers from the rear half of the train via the intermediate cab doors

Passengers have to walk to the end of the trailing 3 car set, exit the train via the cab door, walk down the ballast, climb back into the lead half of the train, then walk to the front of the other half of the train.
