TRAIN ORDER SIGNAL RULES
200. The following signals will appear where conditions require their use.
The indications are given by the position of the arms, by lights of the prescribed color, or by both. Where authorized by the superintendent lights will not be displayed.
Where the semaphore is used the governing arm is displayed to the right of the signal mast as viewed from an approaching train, and on double or three or more tracks, governs trains moving against the current of traffic the same as if moving with the current of traffic.
201. Unless otherwise provided, for movements not provided for by time—table, train orders will be issued by authority and over the signature of the superintendent and only contain information or instructions essential to such movements.
They must be brief and clear; in the prescribed forms when applicable; and without erasure, alteration, interlineation or punctuation.
Words or figures in train orders must not be surrounded by brackets, circles, or other characters.
202. Each train order must be given in the same words to all employes or trains addressed.
203. Train orders, except slow or cautionary orders, must be numbered consecutively each day, beginning at midnight.
204. Train orders must be addressed to those who are to execute them, naming the place at which each is to receive his copy. Those for a train must be addressed to the conductor and engineer, and also to anyone who acts as its pilot. Those for a yard engine will be addressed "Yard Engine in care of Yardmaster", “Yardmaster" or "C&E Yard Engines" as desired. A copy for each employe addressed must be supplied by the operator.
Orders addressed to operators restricting the movement of trains must be respected by conductors and engineers the same as if addressed to them.
Train orders and clearances must be read promptly upon receipt by those to whom they are addressed. Conductors must, when practicable, obtain from engineers an understanding of all train orders before they are acted upon.
Conductors must, when practicable, show train orders and clearances to trainmen. Engineers must show train orders and clearances to members of the crew on the engine.
204 (A). Unless otherwise provided, a copy of all train orders and clearances will be furnished the rear trainman.
When a train has more than one engine in service, or when an engine is added between terminals, a copy of all train orders and clearances affecting their movement must be furnished to each engineer.
205. Each train order must be written in full in a book provided for that purpose in the office of the train dispatcher, and with it recorded:
Time train order signal displayed;
Indication displayed by train order signal;
To what offices the order was transmitted;
The names of those who signed the order, when required.
These records must be made at once and never from memory or memoranda. Additions to train orders must not be made after they have been repeated.
206. In train orders and clearances, regular trains will be designated by numbers as "No 10” and sections as “Second 10", adding engine numbers in train orders if desired. Extra trains will be designated by engine numbers and the direction, as "Extra 798 (east) (west) ”, or "Psgr Extra 897 (east) (west)". Work extras will be designated by engine numbers, as "Work Extra 798". Engines with a prefix or suffix letter will be designated as: "E 47" or “6504 A".
For the movement of an engine of another company, the initials or the designated name will precede the engine number.
When two or more engines are coupled, the number of the leading engine only will be used in train orders, except when helper engines or other engines are placed on the head end of a train over a portion of a subdivision, the road engine number will be used.
Even hours, as "10 00 a m”, must not be used in stating time in train orders.
In transmitting train orders by telegraph, time may be stated in figures only, or duplicated in words.
In transmitting and repeating train orders by telephone, time must be pronounced first, thus: one naught five; then spelled letter by letter, thus: 0-n-e n—a-u-g—h-t f—i-v-e, following by pronouncing each figure, thus: 1-0-5. The names of stations, sections, and direction of extras must be pronounced plainly and then spelled letter by letter, thus: Aurora, A-u-r-o—r—a; Second, S-e-c-o-n-d; East, E-a-s-t. Order numbers, train, engine and other numbers must be pronounced first and then followed by pronouncing each figure, thus: One hundred five, 1-0-5; Twenty-seven-fifty-six, 2-7-5-6, except where the number is but one figure, it must be pronounced first, thus: One; then spelled, thus: O-n-e. The letters duplicating names of stations, sections, direction and numerals will not be written in the train order book nor upon train orders, except time which may be duplicated in words.
When train orders are transmitted by telegraph, the train dispatcher must write the order the first time it is repeated, and must underscore each word and figure each time it is repeated thereafter. When transmitted by telephone he must write the order as he transmits it and must underscore each word and figure each time as it is repeated.
207. To transmit a train order, the train dispatcher must instruct each office addressed the position and direction in which the train order signal is to be displayed and the number of copies to be made, thus: “Stop West copy 5", or “19 East copy 3".
208. A train order to be sent to two or more offices must be transmitted simultaneously to as many of them as practicable. When not sent simultaneously to all, the order must be sent first to the superior train.
The several addresses must be in the order of superiority of trains, each office taking its proper address and, when practicable, except in automatic block signal territory, must include the operator at the meeting or waiting point.
Copies of the order addressed to the operator at the meeting or waiting point must be delivered to the trains affected until all have arrived from one direction.
208 (A). A train order must not be issued for a train at the point where its movement is restricted if it can be avoided. When so sent, except at its initial station, the fact must be stated in the order. The train being restricted must be brought to a stop before delivery is made, and special precautions must be taken to insure safety.
A train advanced to a station where the opposing train receives the order must approach that station expecting to find the train receiving the order on the main track and, where conditions require, the train advanced must protect against the opposing train as prescribed by Rule 99.
209. Operators receiving train orders must write or typewrite them in manifold during transmission. They must retain a copy of each train order. The “complete", the time, and the signature of the operator must be in his handwriting.
209 (A). If the requisite number of copies of a train order cannot be made at one writing, operators must make additional copies from one previously repeated, and must then repeat to the train dispatcher from the new copies each time additional copies are made. Initials of operator who recopies the order must be shown, but the date of issue, time completed, and name of original receiving operator must not be changed. Operators must retain a copy of each additional writing, showing thereon the time and date it was repeated to the train dispatcher.
The train dispatcher must place notation in train order book of each repetition. When an error is made in transmitting a train order and before it has been repeated, all copies of that order must be immediately destroyed, the order marked “void" in the train order book, and if reissued given another number.
If an order in which an error has been made has been repeated, that order must be annulled.
When train orders are annulled on other than
210. When a train order has been transmitted, operators
must, unless otherwise directed, repeat it at once in the succession in
which the several offices have been addressed.
211.Clearance Form A must be filled out by the operator before clearing a train, showing thereon, without erasure or alteration, the address, the total number of train orders (if none show "no") and the number of each train order, if any, and transmit to the train dispatcher from the clearance as “Seattle, clear No 17 with 3 orders numbers 1, 2 and 3", or "Seattle, clear No 17, no orders".
The train dispatcher must make the required record in the train order
book and check the order numbers and if correct will reply as, “Seattle,
clear No 17 with 3 orders numbers
Operators must make the required number of copies of Clearance Form A at one writing, sign last name in full and retain a copy. Typewriter must not be used in writing clearance.
Clearance Form A must be delivered together with all train orders. Conductors and engineers must, and when practicable other members of the crew will, see that their train is correctly designated and that the information shown on the clearance corresponds with the train orders received.
In case of failure of communication, if all orders held for a train have
been completed, the operator may deliver such orders accompanied by a
Clearance Form A bearing notation
When communication is restored, operator will notify the train dispatcher the time each train was cleared and the numbers of the orders delivered, which the train dispatcher will record in the train order book.
212. When so directed by the train dispatcher, a train order, having been transmitted, may be acknowledged before repeating, by the operator responding: "(number of train order) to (train number), X" with the operator’s initials and office signal. The operator must then write on the order his initials and the time.
213. "Complete" must not be given to a train order for delivery to a train until the has been repeated, or the "X" response sent by the operator who receives the order for the train being restricted.
214. When a train order has been repeated, including the signature of the superintendent, or “X” response sent, and before “complete" has been given, the order must be treated as a holding order for the train addressed, but must not be otherwise acted on until "complete" has been given.
If communication fails before an office has repeated an order or has sent the "X" response, the order at that office is of no effect and must be there treated as if it had not been sent.
216. For train orders delivered by the train dispatcher, the requirements as to the record and delivery are the same as at other offices.
216 (A). When the train dispatcher issues a train order
that is to be delivered to a train by the train dispatcher, a carbon copy
of the body of the order must be made in the train
217.A train order to be delivered to a train at a point not a train order office, or at which the office is closed, must be addressed to “C&E________ (at) (between) ________ care of _______", and forwarded and delivered with Clearance Form A by the person in whose care it is addressed, and who is responsible for its delivery.
When delivery is to be made by conductor or engineer of another train, the numbers of such orders must be shown in the usual manner on Clearance Form A of the train making the delivery and both conductor and engineer supplied with copies. If necessary, train must be stopped to effect delivery.
When orders are sent in the manner herein provided, to a train, the superiority
of which is thereby restricted, the operator will be directed to make
an extra copy of the order, which he will deliver to the person who is
to make delivery of the order. On this copy, the person delivering the
order must secure the signatures of the conductor and engineer addressed.
This copy he must deliver to the first operator accessible, who must at
once transmit the signatures of the conductor and engineer to the train
dispatcher, and preserve the copy. "Complete” must not be given
to the order for a train being advanced until the train dispatcher has
218. When a train is named in a train order by its schedule number alone, all sections of that schedule are included, and copies of the order must be delivered to each section.
219. An operator must not repeat or give the "X" response to a train order restricting the movement of a train which has received Clearance Form A at that station, or after the engine has passed his train order signal displaying proceed indication (Rule 200 C) until he has obtained the signatures of the conductor and engineer to the order.
When a restricting train order is issued to a train after Clearance Form A has been delivered, operator must take up and destroy all clearances that have been delivered to that train at that station and a new clearance must be issued showing the numbers of all orders delivered that train at that station.
When a train order that does not restrict the train is issued after clearance
has been delivered, if it is not practicable to take up clearance, the
train dispatcher will authorize the operator to issue an additional clearance
220. Train orders once in effect continue so until fulfilled, superseded or annulled. Any part of an order specifying a particular movement may be either superseded or annulled.
Orders held by, or issued for, or any part of an order relating to, a regular train become void when such train loses both right and schedule as prescribed by Rules 4 and 82, or its schedule is annulled.
When a conductor or engineer, or both, is relieved before the completion of a trip, all train orders, clearances and instructions held by them must be delivered to the relieving conductor or engineer. Such train orders, clearances and instructions must be compared by the relieving conductor and engineer before proceeding.
220 (A). Train orders annulling a schedule or a section and slow or cautionary orders issued to a conductor or engineer continue in effect to them on continuous trip or tour of duty, although the schedule or section number or the running order of their train be changed.
221. Unless otherwise provided, a fixed signal must be used at each train order office.
Where a two indication color light type or Swift type, or two position
semaphore type train order signal is used, signal will indicate “stop"
when trains are to be stopped for train orders,
Where a three indication color light type or three position semaphore type train order signal is used, signal will indicate "stop" when trains are to be stopped for train orders and will indicate “19 order" when trains are to receive train orders without stopping.
Train order signal must indicate "stop" when the order is addressed to the operator at the meeting or waiting point, or when an order restricting the superiority of a train is issued at the point where its movement is restricted.
Unless otherwise provided, when there are no train orders, signal must indicate "proceed".
While "stop" or "19 order" indication is displayed, trains must not proceed without a Clearance Form A.
Operators must have the proper appliances for hand signalling ready for immediate use and will use these hand signals should the fixed signal fail to operate properly, or when other conditions require.
THE FOLLOWING RULE 221 APPLIES ONLY ON THE MINNEAPOLIS AND ST. LOUIS RAILWAY COMPANY.
221. Unless otherwise provided, a fixed signal must be used at each train order office.
Where a two indication color light type, or Swift type, or two position semaphore type train order signal is used, signal will indicate STOP when trains are to be stopped for train orders or when train orders are to be delivered to them.
Where three indication color light type or three position semaphore type train order signals are used, they will display indications as follows:
RESTRICTED SPEED indication will be used for train. orders affecting
movement of train beyond the station at which this indication is displayed.
Train will use main track at restricted speed to train order signal.
Trains must acknowledge RESTRICTED SPEED indication of train order signal by two long sounds of engine whistle, signal 14( b ). When engineer sounds whistle signal 14( b ), operator will then display train order signal at STOP indication.
Clearance Form A or train order and Clearance Form A must be delivered with train order signal displaying STOP indication.
Train order signal must indicate STOP when order is addressed to operator at the meeting or waiting point or when an order restricting the superiority of a train is issued at the point where its movement is restricted.
A Clearance Form A is required on a STOP indication of the train order signal.
A train must not leave a station while train order signal is displaying and RESTRICTED SPEED indication.
221 (A). When an operator receives the signal "stop" or "19" followed by the direction, he must immediately display the proper indication for the direction indicated and then reply "SD" or "19D", adding the direction, and until the order has been delivered or annulled the position of the signal must not be restored to "proceed".
At a train order office where there is no train order signal the operator will respond "NS" instead of “SD" or "19D”.
222. Unless relieved of that duty, operators must promptly
record and report to the train dispatcher the time of arrival, departure
or passing of all trains and the direction of extra
They must, when practicable, observe trains and report at once to the train dispatcher if the proper signals are not displayed.
223. The following signals and abbreviations may be used:
Initials for signature of the superintendent; Such office and other signals as designated by the superintendent;
224. To relay a train order, the train dispatcher must
transmit it to the relaying operator, who must then transmit it to destination.
