The North East Line Upgrade has allowed VLocity trains to run to Albury/Wodonga for the first time. The VLocity is the newest and fastest train in the V/Line fleet. It has mobile signal boosters for better phone coverage and better accessibility for people with prams or mobility aids.
The train stabling at Albury Station was upgraded to allow VLocity trains to stable overnight. Since 22 July 2022, the new VLocity trains have stored in the stabling facility overnight, ready to start service the next morning.
The works to upgrade the stabling facilities at Albury Station included:
- upgraded signalling, communications and train control systems
- extended stabling tacks
- improved train cleaning facilities
- extra lighting, fencing, gates, CCTV and pathways.
