Trains passing in opposite direction on a one track rail line

From: "Ryan Victor"

Practical Question: If there was only 1 track how did train get around each other? In other words if it took 9 days to travel the line, would someone on the east coast have to wait 18 days (train travel to the west coast and back) before seeing another train heading west?

Just Curious
