Modeling a fictional railroad,

But upstream and downstream showed…..

Two diverging ways

Near a church where one prays,

Suggestive of earlier things!

Stone chapel divides the two routes,

One track dead ends–beyond of no use—

A three track interchange

In front arranged,

Where rolling stock can be picked up by the 0-5-0* and exchanged!

Whole thing is on solid ground,

The back track the tail of a run-around….

Slightly obscured

By the chapel observed,

Examples all over can be found!

Jonathan Caswell

*the “0-5-0” is using one’s hand (four fingers plus the thumb) to pick up rolling stock and replace it with another. Also known as “fiddling”.
