V/Line - VLocity train issues, 2016

In January 2016 a large proportion of the V/Line VLocity fleet was withdrawn from service due to wheel wear issues, and a few days later they were banned from operations on the suburban network due to level crossing activation issues.

Free travel for V/Line passengers, yet there is still a line at the Southern Cross ticket office
