A Sandringham train was derailed between Richmond and Flinders Street station this afternoon and the line will be closed tonight, a spokeswoman for Bayside Trains said.
There are no reported injuries and the company is currently on the scene investigating the cause of the accident, communications manager Leonora Curnick said.
The Sandringham line will be closed until further notice and commuters are urged to catch replacement buses which will run from South Yarra to Sandringham or make alternative arrangements.
The train was derailed shortly before 4pm close to Richmond station.
