V/Line - Werribee line rail cleaning trains

Following the opening of Regional Rail Link for Geelong line services in June 2015, V/Line commenced operating rail cleaning trains on the old route between Werribee and Little River, in order to keep the rail heads free of rust for correct signal and level crossing operation. These operations stopped soon after, and in October 2015 Metro banned the operation of VLocity and Sprinter DMUs between Werribee and Manor Junction.

Presumably V/Line still wants to keep the 'old' line via Werribee available for passenger services
