    I don't know about that one, here at Norwich we have two routes out of the station (left of Crown Point towards coastal lines (Whitlingham) - right of Crown Point (over Trouse bridge) towards London and Ely) technically both routes are electrified (coastal direction is from Crown Point.)

    sorry...

    I mean four routes out before you come to the first station (Brundall, Salhouse, Diss, Attleborough, or Twyford, Earley, Reading West, Tilehurst). By your logic there is actually only one route out of Norwich station.

    Westbury - junction station where slow routes cross over the fast and the platforms are on a loop off the fast through line.
