The City Loop is confusing at the best of times, with trains running in different directions at different times, some direct, some via the Loop.
What really needs to happen is a review and simplification of Loop operations to provide consistent, efficient, easy to understand train services.
Note: Some further variations exist to the patterns illustrated above; for instance Friday and Saturday late-night (after12:30am) trains do not run via the Loop.
V/Line, Showgrounds and Flemington racecourse services not shown.
