I hear there's a recently installed universal crossover just north of the Petersburg station called Dunlop. Can anyone confirm?

Also, is the railroad connecting Bricks and Battle with a second main track?

There is a new double crossover at "Dunlop" called "Petersburg", also a new double crossover at FA, Meadow and South Weldon replacing single crossovers. There's a new double crossover at Armstrong, just north of Rocky Mount, about half way to Battle. Also new double crossover at Enfield. CSX is building a new intermodal facility between Armstrong and Battle with a lead going between those two points and new interlocking at "Bulluck", which is about 2 miles north of Battle. Not too mention that CSX has extended the double main line between South Collier and Carson. In short, there's been a major upgrade to infrastructure on the North End Sub over the last couple of years.
