Summary
  • There had been intermittent issues with the braking performance of the Siemens fleet of vehicles since their introduction into service in 2003. There were 64 reported overrun incidents involving Siemens vehicles between March 2006 and the end of January 2007. This compares with three reported overrun incidents for the remainder of the metropolitan fleet over the same period. Following an increased frequency of overrun incidents in December 2006 and January 2007, a significant portion of the Siemens fleet was impounded for retesting, including the vehicles involved in this incident. After its stop at Sandown Park, the train had some difficulty gaining traction as it accelerated up the grade on wet rail. The train subsequently obtained a speed of about 60 km/​h before commencing braking on the approach to Springvale Railway Station. After applying braking, the train coming to a stop with the leading end coming to rest about 70 metres beyond the end of the platform and the train on Springvale Road level crossing. At the time of the incident the rail crossing was protected from road and pedestrian traffic by boom barriers and flashing lights.
