Pacific National Long Island steel train

Until 2020 Pacific National operated the Long Island steel train to the Bluescope Steel mill at Hastings, south of Frankston. The steel is transferred from broad to standard gauge trains at the Melbourne Freight Terminal at South Dynon. In 2015 this facility replaced the Melbourne Steel Terminal, just west of North Melbourne station.
