Fire crew use extinguishers to control a fire next to rail track at 3.20pm. The emergency was located on Flinders Street next to the Melbourne Aquarium. Although train services where not greatly interrupted at time. Commuters have faced over 200 hundred cancellations and delays during the week.
Connex/Veolia who run the rail network are under pressure to provide better services. They blame the union for many of the ongoing problems with maintenance issues.
