9. You mean a siding?

(1) You don't want a road crossing in a siding, as you would have to "cut the crossing" which means uncouple the train, every time you block it for more than 5 minutes. Almost impossible to do with a 1 man crew. If there were roads in the area on the level ground then that could force the siding to not be there.

(2) Could be a pipeline, or some other underground structure that would cause a conflict.

(3) Maybe the river had something to do with not locating the siding on level ground.

I'm speculating. I have looked the town on Google and can't see the tracks.
