Ballarat train delays continue

TRAIN commuters received a shock this morning after discovering services on the Ballarat line were running up to 40 minutes behind schedule.

Delays and cancellation of train services started as early as 5am, with multiple services being switched from trains to coaches.

The latest update from V/Line states that delays of around 40 minutes around the Deer Park area were due to a signal fault.

Multiple trains from Bacchus Marsh to Southern Cross were cancelled and reverted to coach services.
