Maddog - meets like you describe at Chilson are sometimes called "paint scrapers." I made a meet once (and only once!) where neither train fit. It was at Kidd (near Belding) on the Elmdale Sub. One train just took a few cars off the other train so it would fit, and those few cars, of course, did experience some delay in transit, unfortunately. More than 30 years later, I still haven't forgotten it! I should have made the meet at Stanton. Luckily, I was just asked by the trainmaster the next day what happened. Never heard any more about it.
