Fremantle Line trains back on track

Train services on the Fremantle Line are back to normal.

Power was restored around 9.40am and, after a test train ran through empty, normal operations resumed.

Services were disrupted from about 6.40am when a surge protector on a booster transformer – part of the overhead power system – failed and power was lost.

Trains were able to operate only between Perth and Loch Street.

Replacement buses were organised to run between Loch Street and Fremantle, and began operating from around 7.15am.  The bulk of the crowds waiting at stations was cleared by around 8.40am.

Today’s problem was due to equipment failure.  It was completely unrelated to the widespread disruptions of last week, which were related to work being done on the Perth City Link project.
