Ahh! Dual gauge! Now where is a lumbering K-36 or K-37 to waddle through that dual gauge cross-over with Gramps tankcars and pipe gons! With a long D&RGW long caboose, Coupla first, brakeman riding the back platform and Conductor up in his perch servaying his train foreword, searching for locked sliding wheels and hot boxes!
Thank you for your wonderful picture and sharing! What telephoto or zoom lens was used?

Question about the dual gauge switches. If a person lines the switch for a standard gauge movement, does the narrow gauge switch points move as well or is there separate switch stands and rods for each gauge ???

Hi, the switch machine moves both points because one rail is common to booth gauges.
