They can only access tracks 1-7 and almost exclusively use tracks 5 and 6 for this reason.
Empire service trains use tracks five thru nine. As mentioned 1 thru 4 just are not feasible due to lack of 3rd rail and the reverse move to be spun. Five and six seem to be the preferred tracks but I have came in and left off any of the five. AMT 49/48 would be the only trains depending on length where track five or nine would not be used. Although I have had a few times when Ive been asked.
Why arent you moving, your blocking the ladder?? Ahh cause Im stopped at the signal. How many cars do you have?? Eight plus two engines, we called and said anywhere BUT five...
