Does anyone happen to know the number of trains that can be stabled at each stabling facility in Melbourne? There doesn't seem to be anything online that has the overall allocations.

Calder park can hold upto 6 trains apparantly. According to an announcement back when the yard was being built.
Victoria Park can hold 2 trains, and Hurstbridge I believe can hold up to 5 trains at one time.

Mernda can stable 8.
Eltham can stable 5.
Epping can stable 16 (15 as full 6 car sets plus two 3 car sets I think). But that doesn't count any trains in the maintenance/cleaning facility so there could be more on site.

There's a list here from the old days (2005) that needs updating (eg Eltham), adding to (eg Mernda) or deleting from (eg Oakleigh):

There are stations with track-machine storage, eg Burnley westside (wired?) and Bell (unwired?).

Or Caulfield sidings. Sometimes a metro loco will sit there but often empty or works equipment.

Doesn't Werribee station stable one train + 3 carriages on platform 1 overnight? I sorta remember reading about that somewhere. Or is that no more?
