Passing sidings on current D&H

Are all passing sidings on the current D&H remotely operated or are there manually-thrown switches involved on some? Thanks.

A couple on the Sunbury Sub are hand thrown. They have some islands of CTC to operate most down there. North of Binghole everything is CTC.

They put a new siding in on the NJ, in St. Mathieu, QC, which has radio controlled switches. A DTMF code is entered, and it lines accordingly.
