NS train 276 is about to head into the siding at Bunch, northbound. The sidings on this part of the former Southern Railway mainline feature spring switches at their north ends and dispatcher-controlled switches at their south ends. This means that for meets, the usual practice is for northbound trains to go into the hole while southward trains hold the main.
