M307 at Mossend Down Goods won't cancel, any ideas what to do? We've obviously tried to cancel the route but it wont work, is it something to do with the old 1980's era layout?

The shunts into the down yard are controlled by the yard staff themselves you cannot cancel the route in to it, however they should reset the route after a while. If after some time call the yard and select form the list the signal to be replaced.

Refer to Mossend Yard in this wiki entry

It's not my fault! I was left unsupervised.

The Manual said:
All eras: Trains entering the Down yard from Down Reception 1&2 are controlled by signals MY311 and MY309: these are fixed Reds with a PL controlled by Mossend Yard Control. For Sim purposes the user must left click on the relevant signal in lieu of the controller. After a random period of time (up to 10 mins) the signal will clear. After the train has entered the controller may or may not remember to restore the signal switch. If he forgets then you can phone and request the reset.

A similar arrangement applies to Signal M307 except there you have to set the route in before awaiting the controller to clear the signal. If only the front portion of a train on the Down Goods is proceeding past M307 into the Down yard, it will be necessary to phone the controller once the front portion has proceeded, to request that the signal switch is restored and allow a second route to be set.
Edit: And Mark was quicker there.

Two million people attempt to use Birmingham's magnificent rail network every year, with just over a million of them managing to get further than Smethwick.
