the track the Amtrak train was on had been manually switched
Does "manually switched" mean the conductor has to get off the train, physically pull a lever to send the train onto the siding, and then pull the lever again after the train is on the siding to return the switch to mainline? Or can it mean that a dispatcher sitting in an office somewhere has to press a button to control the switch as opposed to a computer algorithm doing it?
