    Switches are pretty much universally measured by the angle of the common crossing. In a #7 the diverging route leaves the straight route at a 1:7 ratio, a #10 at a 1:10 ratio etc.

    Local terminology varies a bit but the length of the closure rails is typically expressed as a suffix, a #7a has a shorter approach than a #7b which is shorter than a #7c etc. Long approach on the main line, short approach in yards.

    You can generally assume that say a #20 is going to have a greater overall length than a #10, but a #10 is not necessarily longer than a #9....

    A CSX autorack and UP oil cans arrive at the fictional city of Shelton.


    Amtrak idles in the station while the two freights pass.




    UP passes CSX at the crossing after the station.




    Later, Amtrak departs from the station in the opposite direction.




    The last coach blocks the view of a fatal car accident (which is why the emergency crews are parked next to the crossing).
