SWITCHING PUZZLE

Two trains travelling in opposite directions on a single track line reach a passing siding. The problem is that both trains are too long to fit on the siding. How do you get the two trains to pass each other? A move is any coupling/uncoupling of cars and any reversal of train direction. I am no longer taking solutions to the puzzel. Try it out and then look for the solution here
