Upgrades to train stabling at Albury Station are required to help enable VLocity trains to run to Albury/Wodonga for the first time.

Project overview

The train stabling at Albury Station is being upgraded to accommodate three three-car VLocity trains.

The works include:

  • upgraded signalling, communications and train control systems
  • extended stabling tacks
  • improved train cleaning facilities
  • additional lighting, fencing, gates, CCTV and pathways.

Works are taking place along the rail line between Albury Station and Bridge Street.

We’re also delivering an accessible ramp at Albury Station, to improve access to the station for people of all abilities.

New trains for the North East Line

The Victorian Government is delivering six comfortable and modern long-haul VLocity trains for the first time on the North East Line.

Without adequate stabling facilities, trains need to travel long distances without passengers, reducing the number of services that can run on the line.

The VLocity is the newest and fastest train in the V/Line fleet, and has improved features including mobile signal boosters for better phone coverage and better accessibility for people with prams or mobility aids.

An upgrade to train stabling at Albury Station is required to house these trains.

More information

Works are now complete to enable VLocity trains to stable overnight at Albury, with only minor works remaining on the Albury stabling upgrade.

From July 2, the first of the new VLocity trains will be housed overnight at the Albury Stabling yard, ready to commence service the next morning.

In the morning there will be an increase from 8 to 15 horn toots prior to 6.30am. The horn toots are slightly quieter on the new VLocity trains than the
current Classic fleet.

The horn toots are a critical safety measure to test the horns prior to departure and to enable the trains to move safely around the stabling yard.
