1962 Uniform Code of Operating Rules – Time Tables


4. Each time table, from the moment it takes effect, supersedes the preceding timetable, and its schedules take effect on any subdivision at the leaving time at their initial stations on such subdivision; but when a schedule of the preceding time table corresponds in

  • Number
  • Class
  • Day of Leaving
  • Direction
  • Initial and Terminating Stations

with a schedule of the new time table, a train authorized by the preceding time table will retain its train orders and assume the schedule of the corresponding number of the new time table.

Schedules on each subdivision date from their initials stations on such subdivision.

Not more than one schedule of the same number and day shall be in effect on any subdivision.

NOTE: “Day of Leaving” is the day of the week the schedule authorizes a train to leave its initial station on the subdivision.

4A. Notice of new time table or supplement will be bulletined at least seventy-two hours prior to and, unless otherwise directed, for six days after it takes effect.

Agents, or yardmasters and locomotive foremen, where employed must take receipt on prescribed form for new time tables and supplements. They must know that yard foremen and yard enginemen are provided with copies before commencing work.

5. Not more than two times are given for a train at any station; where one is given it is the leaving time, except at terminating stations it is the arriving time; where two, they are the arriving and leaving times.

Unless otherwise specified by special instructions, time applies:

  • On single track – at the siding switch where an opposing train clears; where there is no siding designated, it applies at the station.
  • On two or more tracks – at the station.

Schedule meeting or passing stations are indicated by figures in full-faced type.

Both the arriving and leaving times of a train are in full-faced type when both are meeting or passing times or when one or more trains are to meet or pass it between those times.

When trains are to be met or passed at a siding extending between two adjoining stations, the time at each station shall be shown in full-faced type.

Where there are one or more trains to meet or pass a train between two times, or more than one train to meet a train at any station, attention is called to it by small figures showing the numbers of trains to be met or to pass.

2021 Open House Cancelled

Due to Ontario being stuck in phase-3 of COVID reopening, it is with reluctance that the WRMRC executive has decided to cancel our 2021 Fall Open House which was scheduled for October 16th this year.

We had been procrastinating and hoping for better news from the province, but with the occupancy conditions currently in place our club could not reasonably hold a public event.

Phase-3 conditions require us to cap the capacity within our Quonset hut to 25 people, which would have to include the ten or so members volunteering to guide visitors and operate trains. Despite any limit our aisle-ways would prevent proper social distancing, and that cap would obviously cause line-ups before entry. There was also the matter of Ontario’s new vaccine passport system, something we would need to enforce and that none of us wish to police.

In closing, our club recommends you protect yourself and others by following the medical advice of your doctor, and to be vaccinated if you are able to. It is the only way forward for society to return to normal, and for train shows to happen again.

We are hopeful this will all be resolved by the end of March for our club to participate again in the 2022 Doubleheaders Layout Tour, and of course we fully expect to hold our Fall Open House again next October.

Stay safe and stay healthy.
