That's probably Richmond, VA where originally The C&O, SAL and SR lines intersected. There was a somewhat famous posed photo taken in the early 80's of a then Chessie System crossing over a Seaboard System crossing over Southern Railway trains.
Sure that's fine... as long as there's a nearby NS/CSX hub.
There's one in N.C., and some trains go through here with consists from both roads... or one train after another pulled by each separately.

OK, I went to rrpicturesarchives.net and the photos appear in a search for both Seaboard Systems 6719 and Southern 6143 in Richmond, VA in 1983.

There was no train.
Aren’t we being clever……

Ok then, locomotives don’t stop on a dime….and the momentum and mass of the first one dragged the second one in….

Although, this definition of a train is interesting:
The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway's 1948 operating rules define a train as: "An engine or more than one engine coupled, with or without cars, displaying markers."
Awaiting your approval….. ;)

Wouldn't be the first time...
Before I posted it, I searched back, but didn't go back far enough.
Okay, so I did an edit, and threw a different one up.

I like to see smoke that color coming from the cooker when I have a piece of pig on low-and-slow. 🍖🍺
