On Feb. 7 1989 a severe rainstorm hit Melbourne. This up Sandringham train was told to stop at Windsor as there
was flooding between Prahran and Sth Yarra, whilst stopped water started rising at Windsor rapidly with the result
you see here, at one stage the water was actually above the bottom of the doors. This train never ran again!
