Thank you for adding this photo df3vi to the North American Railroader group this is a fantastic example of the gauges in one track...

Interesting in that regardless of which guage an engineer might be using, if he/she were to run through a turnout set in the diverging route direction, the facing points would become an automatic derail. I never thought of that until I saw this photo. One would truly have to be on the ball.
