The Tayuman wye. Originally, this thread was only about this wye. Then over the past month other wyes -- many no longer in use -- were brought up in discussions.

The old wye in Sipocot is visible on Google Earth south of the current station

The current Sipocot station with siding (a parallel track)





Where the main track and siding separate





The old Sipocot wye, located south of the station, that is no longer in use. Note the cruved roads that trace where the wye was.

Credit to Erwin Cornejo Sabilala for pointing out the location of the wye. This has led to an interesting "archeological" exercise.
