Traralgon is located east of Melbourne. The Traralgon line is mostly double track as far as Moe, with the exception of some single track sections, and is mostly single track after Moe, although there are some double track sections. In 1956 electrification of the line was completed as far as Traralgon, but it was eventually cut back to Dandenong. Most services on the Traralgon line are operated by VLocity DMU railcars. The Traralgon line shares the Pakenham suburban line, while services to Bairnsdale share the Traralgon line.
