Melbourne's train operator Metro hopes to clear the scene of a crash in Melbourne's outer-east before New Year's revellers start heading to the city.
A car and train collided at a level crossing near the Ferntree Gully station.
An ambulance spokeswoman says the 41-year-old male driver of the car sustained scratches to his face.
Buses are replacing trains between Upper Ferntree Gully and Bayswater until the site is cleared.
A Metro spokesman says he does not believe it will disrupt services tonight.
