V/Line rail replacement buses

V/Line has a habit of stuffing things up and needing to call in the buses to get commuters home. (They have an even worse habit of cancelling trains to free up drivers to run football specials, putting the commuters onto buses)

No trains running out of Southern Cross due to RRL works, with V/Line staff directing passengers to the replacement buses
