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.

Doubleheaders Layout Tour – Saturday, 06 April 2024

It’s that time of year again!

On Saturday, 06 April 2024, our club’s CP Sudbury Division layout will be open to the public in participation with the annual Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge-Guelph and area tour, organized by the Doubleheaders Model Railway Club. This is a self-guided tour of a large number of club and private home layouts in the area.

If you are new to the Doubleheaders tour there are approximately 25 different layouts you can visit, varying from large club setups to small N-scale pikes, and you can see everything from tinplate trains to scratch-built prototype models. However the layouts are spread over a large area, which makes it difficult to see them all in a day. So you should prepare for a full day of layout touring, and also maybe consider making this an annual, or at least semi-annual event to frequent over the years.

For more details and ticket information please visit the Doubleheaders Model Railway Club web site.

Please note: Though some layouts on the tour are open later, the WRMRC will only be open from 9 am to 5 pm.

Hope to see you then!
