Look left and right

I was studying the First Great Western logo the other day and it dawned on me that the down stroke on the stylised “f” looks like a railway line curving away into the distance. Nice sense of perspective. But what exactly is the other line that’s crossing it?

Railway crossroads? Not a good idea, I feel, however good your signalling systems. It reminds me of a documentary I once saw about the airports in New York City. At La Guardia, the planes taking off crossed the path of the planes coming in. It was supposed to be safe because of the 45-second gaps they put in between.
