    That's different. Can't recall ever seeing signage quite like this example.

    ... it's trackage off a spur to handle a small warehouse... also noting the change in track elevation. Here are a couple diesels working the spur...

    CSX has put that signage up at every industry to identify close clearances for crews.

    Ah. That signage is more of modern era/railroad specific application.

    What's happening that those two diesels appear spaced by those cars?

    I have, too. But one that orders "Dismount", is a different configuration for me.

    ... I've posted this pic before, but sometimes this local runs in this config...

    I'm unsure of the reason as I've never observed a complete job cycle. Most often only a single engine is seen and I'd estimate about half will use a caboose... power'd caboose? They returned to the mainline together.

    Could it be that they are working sidings that are both facing and trailing switches without any runaround?

    i.e., loco # 6116 works the trailing switches and the other works the facing ones (hope I have the terms correct).

    Having the locos at each end would prevent having to flag any of the crossings.



    This could be an interesting operation on my layout

    If you dont have the ability to run around this would be perfect. I know the NS does this on the NEC to expedite movements. BTW that rectangular stop sign is for you to stop the train before crossing the street is my guess.That stop dismount is a new one on me. I am used to white signs that say no clearance.
