"N" is the normal route.

"R" is the reverse--also called the diverging--route.

Thanks. The Normal position makes sense, but calling the diverging route Reverse seems odd, but I’m sure they had their reasons.

I started some freight car work today. I wanted some boxcars with doors that open, but that means I have to paint the interiors.

It looks like Styrene to me.

Because there are some specific cases where the "normal" route of a switch is NOT the straight route.

So "Normal" and "Reversed" are the preferred terms to describe the position of any switch.

Operationally switches have a "normal" position to be in; and switches on main tracks and often other important running tracks MUST be placed back in "normal" (not necessarily straight, as noted above) position whenever not actively in use. "Reversed" is "not normal", not necessarily diverging.

Nick, I used flat aircraft light grey. It had a hint of beige and was the closest match to the photos I have of RBOX cars interiors.

Karl, tell us more please about the switchstands. Are the commercial or scratch? They look great.

They are the new Showcase Miniatures kits. They just got them restocked. They go together easily.

I worked on getting part of the fleet layout ready.
Painting wheels, weathering, body mounting couplers, and adding crossover platforms. 15 cars down, about 20 to go.
