VLocity transfers on the Geelong-Ballarat line

In December 2018 empty VLocity trains were transferred to/from Melbourne and Ballarat via the freight only Geelong-Ballarat railway, so they could access the Bombardier maintenance facility at Ballarat East. The usual route via Bacchus Marsh was closed to allow work on the Ballarat Line Upgrade to be completed.
