I'm planning a dual track mainline for a modular N-scale layout. I am wondering how prototype railroads (in the USA) operate when they have dual mainlines. If it's a west/east line, do they run eastbound trains on the south (or right) track and westbound trains on the north track? Maybe they don't have a default?

Thanks,

Andrew

No double tracks near me, except for the CATS light rail system.

They run the north train on the east track and the south train on the west track. Sometime they run one the same track, when doing maintenance on a short section on the other track.

Sorry i don't know about the real thing.
