Due to a shortage of N-type carriages, the 9:32am Shepparton service has often been run by an H set lately.

Reason: Adjusted departure time from Southern Cross Station to 9.32 rather than 9.52
I am extremely disappointed because I never got the chance to go to Bundoora in an A class :evil:

An updated list of H set runs will be coming soon once the RRL timetable comes out in June.

Currently, they operate Seymour and Bacchus Marsh trains in peak periods M-F only, occasionally venturing to Shepparton as noted above. All services on the Geelong, Bendigo and Traralgon trains are now Vlocity/Sprinter DMU services with N carriage sets for long haul journeys to Warrnambool, Swan Hill and Bairnsdale
