Scissors Crossover

Scissors Crossover

When two crossover overlap exactly opposite to each other, a scissors cross over is formed. It consists of 4 turnouts and diamond crossing. The same function can be performed by two crossovers following one after the other, but the advantage in scissors crossover is the saving of space. This is commonly used in busy passenger yards when two train are dealt with on a single long platform.
