Puzzle

US Version

Two trains pass in the darkness of the tunnel. Move them around so that each locomotive ends up on the opposing track while still maintaining the same order of its cars. There's one trick, though: The number 2 cars for both trains must remain in their original tracks.

UK Version

Two trains pass in the darkness of the long tunnel. Move them around so that each locomotive ends up on the opposing track while keeping its carriages in the same order. The only carriages that don't need to end up on the opposing track are the number 2 carriages of both trains.
