1962 Uniform Code of Operating Rules – Movement of Trains in Same Direction by Signal Indication


251. On portions of the railway, and on designated tracks so specified in the time table, or by special instructions, trains will run with reference to other trains in the same direction by block signals whose indications will supersede superiority of trains, except that the movement of work extras will be governed by train orders.

252. The movement of trains will be supervised by the train dispatcher, who will issue orders as may be required.

253. The train dispatcher must be advised in advance of any known condition that will delay the train or prevent it from making usual speed.

254. A train must not enter on nor foul a main track, nor re-enter a main track after having cleared it except by signal indication or until permission has been received from the operator or train dispatcher.

255. When a signal or permission has been given to a train, it may proceed until receiving a signal or message to take the siding. Such instruction by message will, when practicable, be given at a preceding station.

256. Unless otherwise provided, trains displaying signals will continue to display them through the territory.

257. Special instructions as may be necessary to govern this method of operation may be issued. Except as affected by such instruction and Rules 251-256 inclusive, all Operating, ABS, and Interlocking Rules remain in force.

2022 Virtual Tour Video

For your viewing entertainment, our club is sharing what we hope will be our last ever virtual layout tour video.

To give some background, this was prepared as our submission for the 2022 Doubleheaders Tour last March, and features absolutely no (zero / nil / nada) trains operating. This was because every past video we’ve produced shows practically nothing other than trains running, and we wished to do something more instructive and completely different this time around. So sit back, grab a beverage, and listen as WRMRC VP Ted Kocyla  bores  enlightens you for 23 minutes about what the club has accomplished over two years of pandemic restrictions.



If nothing else, this video helps us advertise all the new things you can see at our upcoming Fall Open House, where we hope everyone can visit us in person again. Stay tuned for more information about that. But for now, this video will have to do.
