A train almost veered onto the wrong track after a line fault at Cardiff Central, Network Rail said. If the driver had not stopped, the carriage would have been diverted onto a line where trains could run in both directions. Network Rail said it had launched an investigation into the 'serious signalling irregularity' at Cardiff East Junction. No-one was injured during the incident on 29 December 2016. The incident occurred after a section of track was reopened following resignalling and track remodelling work in and around Cardiff Central station. [From Richard Buckby]
