A new train storage facility has been built in Kananook to replace the existing train storage facility in Carrum and provide capacity to accommodate more trains in the future following completion of the Metro Tunnel project.

The facility was completed in May 2020 and has enough space to house three times the number of trains that could previously be stored at Carrum.

Train storage facilities are where trains are parked while not in operation. Typically, trains return to a storage facility at the end of service and are stored overnight until they are required. While there, the trains are cleaned internally and prepared for the next day's service. This includes removing waste, minor maintenance and routine inspections.

Train storage facilities help make sure train services across the rail network are operating as efficiently and reliably as possible.

Check out the Kananook Train Storage fact sheet for more information.
