Update from V/Line (VIC) about the ongoing issues with coaches replacing some rail services. The upshot is: these services are free, and they will accept bikes, subject to space and you taking responsibility for it (including loading and unloading).

This mostly affects services to/from Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo and Traralgon. So, the Bellarine, Ballarat-Skipton, O'Keefe and Gippsland Plains Rail Trails respectively.
