Description:
The Serviceton railway line (also known as the Western line) is a railway serving the west of Victoria, Australia. The line links the state capital of Melbourne to the cities of Ballarat and Ararat, and once extended to the South Australian border as part of the Melbourne-Adelaide railway. In this role it has been replaced by the Western standard gauge line.

Services

Metro Trains Melbourne operates suburban passenger train services along the inner section of the line as far as Sunshine as the Sydenham Line, while V/Line services operate as the Interurban Ballarat Line and the Intercity Ararat Line. During peak hour some services originate and terminate at Bacchus Marsh. Passengers on the inner section of the line to Melton are permitted to use Metcard tickets to access the services, with this section marked as the Melton line on suburban network maps. Beyond Ararat the line is part of the Western standard gauge line and sees The Overland to Adelaide.

Freight services also use the line between Ballarat and Melbourne, coming off the Mildura line. The Western standard gauge also sees a large number of interstate freight trains as part of the Melbourne-Adelaide railway.
