Yes, it’s a three way switch, with one leg being used in a crossover. Commercial component readily available to model that trackwork, in most scales.

Hi Brian and List Members,

Isn't that simply a three-way switch? In which case these are commercially made and available...

Anyone know what the diamond shaped placard on the end of the car at far left is? 

 

The switch leading to the track the locomotive is on with its points inside the crossover switch is an interesting detail as well. Would be fun to model.
