An Aberystwyth-Birmingham service had a fire this morning in the Smethwick area and eventually returned to Abbey Foregate.
Is it possible to cross over using the trailing crossover at Galton, bearing in mind the junction was previouly a diamond crossing, or would it need to return bang road to Albion?

There is currently no crossover move available at Galton Junction. This will be made available as part of the re-signalling in December 2017.
