Summary
  • At about 2035 hours on 21 March 2010, the 2010 hours Up Metro Trains Melbourne (MTM) Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) suburban passenger service from Lilydale contacted the rear-end locomotive of an engineering maintenance train (plant train) near Ringwood Station in a sideswipe collision. Moving in the Down2 direction, the plant train had been admitted to and stopped on the Up Belgrave track but its trailing end was fouling the route set for the MTM suburban passenger train. The passenger train was travelling on the authority of a proceed indication on a fixed signal. The signal panel indicated the plant train had cleared the points and the interlocked track circuit when it stopped for the driver to discuss requirements with track works staff. This enabled the signaller to set a route and clear an Up Home signal for the suburban train to approach platform 2, however although the track circuit was free and permitted the route to be set for the passenger train movement, there was insufficient space for the MTM train to pass across the rear of the stationary plant train without contacting it.
