Seymour is located north of Melbourne. The Seymour line shares the Craigieburn suburban line before continuing north. It is mostly double track, except for a section of single track for several kilometres approaching Seymour. Between Broadmeadows and Seymour the standard gauge line to Albury runs adjacent to the broad gauge line to Seymour. Most services on the Seymour line are operated by Sprinter DMU railcars, with some locomotive-hauled services also operating. Services to and from Shepparton share the Seymour line.
