Trains not running on time

V/Line has released its latest monthly stats and trains across the goldfields region are still lagging when it comes to being on time.

During October, almost 96 percent of Ballarat train services turned up but only 87 percent arrived on time.

It was slightly better on the Bendigo line with 97 percent delivered and 87 percent on time.

V/Line says copper wire theft, people hanging around the train line and work on new stations in the Melton area contributed to delayed trains last month.
