Train delays after man hit by locomotive
Train services have been delayed this afternoon after a 30-year-old man had both his legs severed when he was hit by a locomotive at North Melbourne station.
Police said the man was hit shortly after 5pm by the V/Line locomotive, which was not carrying passengers at the time.
A spokesman for V/Line said trains running through the station - to Bendigo, Ballarat Sseymour and Geelong - had been delayed by up to 15 minutes.
Platforms four and five at North Melbourne were cordoned off while ambulance officers and firefighters attended to the man.
The V/Line delays were flowing through to some Connex services. The Sydenham, Werribee, Williamstown, Upfield and Cragieburn lines are all funnelled through North Melbourne.
