F is for freight, fouling point, frogs, faded, and familiar.

Freight: the products carried within [in this case it’s grain]

Fouling point; the point near a switch where a car or locomotive on one track will obstruct movement on the adjacent track(s)

Frogs; heavy metal flangeways that connect track to switches, diamonds, cross-overs and other track structuress; frogs guide wheels from one track structure to another

*hey I learned two new railroad terms today!*

Faded;  to lose or cause to lose color as in ageing

Familiar; often encountered or seen
