(ABC News: Cameron Best) Many of Victoria's V/Line train services are overcrowded and at capacity before they have even reached their busiest stations, just two years after a multi-billion-dollar upgrade to the state's Regional Rail Link. In 2015 $3.65 billion was spent on building 90 kilometres of track between West Werribee and Southern Cross station in Melbourne's CBD to service an extra 54,000 people a day travelling from Melbourne's booming west. In April this year $1.45 billion was dedicated to speeding up services in the Bendigo, Ballarat and Gippsland regions, including $110 million to establish a new Surf Coast rail project to Torquay, while 151 new services were added across the state in August. But that has not made life easier for Chris Saunders, who has been commuting from Geelong to Southern Cross for 25 years. He said the service is not what people would expect given the amount of money that has been spent on rolling out the new fleet of trains. "It's uncomfortable and it's often delayed — any cancellations, any delays have a flow-on effect throughout the day," he said. "Most people are unhappy and uncomfortable. It's too cramped, too crowded." Mr Saunders said the attraction of being able to get work done on the trains, which are designed for longer-haul travel, was no longer a reality.

"It's just a commute and sometimes it feels a bit like a cattle truck," he said. V/Line statistics showed eight morning peak services on the Geelong line were at 100 per cent capacity before they had reached the busiest stations — the growth suburbs of Tarneit and Wyndham Vale on Melbourne's fringe. Even though there are 445 seats on the Waurn Ponds service to Melbourne that leaves at 6:48am, it is at capacity by Tarneit. In Ballarat, three morning peak services are full before they reach Caroline Springs and Deer Park. Many afternoon peak services are also bursting at the seams. Packed in like
