I was on Amtrak train 351 to Chicago to visit a rail fan friend of mine there last Friday morning when that Amtrak stop just north of Rapids Street to clear a NB CN local freight train (not sure of the freight train number) so Amtrak can use main track 2 to reach the first stop at Troy. Enter main track 1 at old 14F switch and crossover 2F and then enter main track 2,

The platform at Troy is on track 2. Track 1 has no boarding surface of any type at Troy.

The platform in Troy is on Main 1. Its very time consuming to ride the elevator twice, but they have free parking.

Train 391 NB passing MP 22.5 at 8 pm. Looks like it had two or three BNSF locomotives as power. Maybe off of that sand train this morning.

I have to concur about the Troy platform being on Main 1.
I found a more recent track diagram than I have in this thread:
http://railroadfan.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18187

Not having any type of boarding platform on Main 2 was an interesting decision.
Guess they like elevators.
