DAMAGE to a boom gate at Deer Park Station has caused the delay or cancellations of a number of trains on the Ballarat line this evening.
While the line has just been reopened, there have been a number of changes to the timetable, the most notable being the 4.48pm Ararat to Southern Cross train which has been cancelled for this evening.
Earlier the 2.16pm Southern Cross to Ararat train was cancelled.
Some delays can be expected for the evening commute this morning as the train line gets back in action.
The damage to the boom gate comes just days after crossing gates on Lydiard Street at Ballarat Station were destroyed by an out-of-control train
