Trains have been suspended on part of the Melbourne rail network, after a freight train derailed and blocked a highway in the city's north-east.
The train was carrying railway sleepers when it derailed in Lilydale about 2.30am today.
Replacement buses are in operation from Lilydale to Mooroolbark, Metro Trains advised.
"Trains continue to run Mooroolbark – Flinders Street with possible alterations," Metro Trains said.
The Maroondah Highway was also blocked but has since reopened.
Meanwhile, the Frankston line is also experiencing delays after a person was hit by a train.
Services between Carrum and Frankston have resumed after being suspended, but passengers are advised to leave extra travel time.
