    Hi Folks:

    2 Quick questions:

    How are trains named? Im getting ready to start laying out the different trains that will be running on my layout and I want to get the names right -- if it matters, UP Or BNSF Practice would be appropriate for my line

    2. How are switches named or numbered in prototype practice? Its getting to where I will soon need to start labeling them and want to get it right (again, BNSF or UP is appropriate for my layout)

    Here is the BNSF Train Symbol guide. It helps to know the station names. I use the SUPNTW and NTWSUP on my layout.[442]BNSF Train Symbols.pdf

    For switches you might want to refer to the timetable for your SubDivision for more specific answers.
