LOCAL police and V/Line are calling for community assistance in tracking down vandals who damaged a train as it passed through Euroa last week.

V/Line officials confirm that rocks were pelted at an Albury-bound train near the Euroa Railway Station last Wednesday night just after 8pm.

As a result of the rock throwing attack, one carriage had a damaged door panel as well as a broken door glass, while another carriage window was chipped.

V/Line confirmed no passengers were injured as the train continued on its journey to Albury.

Its corporate relations and communications manager Colin Tyrus said the two damaged carriages were unavailable to customers for the return trip to Melbourne on Thursday morning.

“The train had to terminate at Broadmeadows so it could go straight to the workshops for repair,” he said.
