Teach me! This time we have a train heading west and needing to switch the facing point spur. Gray rectangle is the loco. Blue is the car to be left at the spur. Brown is other cars. Green is caboose. I assume the engineer and brakeman are in the locomotive. The conductor is in the caboose (comfortably shuffling papers). The train pulls into the siding and stops with the blue car just short of the switch to the spur. That brings us to Diagram 1. Now, because I am not sure exactly which crew member would do what, I am going to post the diagrams and then you can describe what each crew member would be doing.
