The real problem or issue is the entire January period timetable is too light and in need of more trains. Lily dale trains this week packed with people hard to get on at Melbourne central. 

Metro trains need to run more trains over the January period.

A few services are cut, oh boohoo. Still better than the Lilydale and Belgrave off peak weekday timetable any time of the year.

You could pretty much apply OP's situation to any other point of time and it would still be the exact same. People standing on trains isn't a seasonal problem.

It's a 30 minute service.  At weekends it's 20 minutes, which is about as much as the single track sections at the ends of both lines will allow, but it's possible.  There have been rumours about a 20 minute weekday service, but it never happens.  Subject, of course, to availability of trains (shouldn't be a problem) and drivers.
