Each mainline will operate about 6 trains using automatic block control, using a simple method of using locomotive wheels to bridge the outer rails in an insulated section. (Note: As of 10/31/2007, the first mainline is operational with 6-trains on it. The 2nd mainline is laid, and the blocks are being installed.)
