Heard on SEN at around 5:30pm this afternoon that rail services between Burnley and Camberwell have been suspended due to an unspecified incident at Glenferrie station.

Does anyone have anymore info?

There was apparently bedlam near Burnley station as people scrambled to get onto the #70 trams.

Metlink now reports normal services resumed at 7:29pm. Huge numbers are cars still at Blackburn railway station carpark at 7pm.

Indeed there was. My agent on out in the field reported that someone was struck by a train at Glenferrie and that services were severely delayed and that passengers were advised to get a tram into the city aparently.

Chaos is probably an understatement.

People were forced on to trams, told to go to Camberwell. Pedestrians were overflowing on the corner of Burnley St, and when a tram did come, nobody could get on. Taxi's were the vehicle of choice for some, while many others chose to walk or wait for a lift. Traffic around Burnley was worse than normal, as was Hawthorn. All 75 trams were chockers as well.

I didn't see one Connex staff member the whole time - just an observation, not an attack on Connex.

There were a lot of angry people on the trams.

And back in to hiding I go Wink

I see this topic will be locked up soon; the problem at Glenferrie station was someone got hit by a train and now past on. Embarassed

It was very sad.

Back on topic:

Pax were repeatedly advised at Southern Cross, All passengers on platform 10 please note: there are no trains running from the city to Camberwell on the Lilydale or Belgrave lines, please catch a tram to Camberwell junction from flinders street or take the next train to Glen Waverley and catch a tram at Burnley. This is due to an accident at Glenferrie.

Glen Waverley was pretty much the only train running through platform 10, mayhem and masses of people. Glen Waverley bound trains were full at southern cross…. So no chance of getting on at flagstaff, MC or Parliament. I counted roughly 200 in my car…. So I would say around 1200 people where on my train this evening and it certainly felt like it! Air-Con kept dropping out… and you get that eerie silence.

Yes, I can confirm.

No trains, but major mess around Richmond around 5:25 when I arrived.

Trains were only running to Glen Waverley, but were packed like no tomorrow!!!

Passengers were told to get a tram, which were all full anyway, they were later told busses would be running.

I caught the Glen Waverley train to Glen Iris, and the bus from there to Waverly road, where I changed to the 700 to Box Hill.  Figured this would be quicker then waiting for rail replacement.

Radio traffic report did state fatality.
