The exercise at the Church Avenue level crossing involved more than 100 Public Transport Authority staff, police, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, St John Ambulance, the Health Department, the City of Armadale and Curtin University volunteers.

The exercise used a bus parked beside a stationary train in a siding to make it as real as possible.

Signage around the area told people the incident was an exercise, not a real event.
