TO039 Instructions for Train and Traffic Control BR 1950

  • TO039  Instructions for Train and Traffic Control BR 1950

NEW MAY 2016. This is BR87223, published by the Railway Executive and dated April 1950. Its full title is 'Procedure to be Adopted and Standard Instructions in Connection with Train and Traffic Control'. It was a soft-covered booklet containing twelve pages of thin poor quality paper. There was a single typewritten page of amendments dated July 1955, and this is included in the file.

It was an early attempt to get all the pre-existing separate controls working together. It therefore dealt more in broad principles than in precise details as to how these were to be achieved. It begins with a Foreword outlining the structure of the organisation. The instructions then start with a section on the Objectives of Control. This is followed by sections on Train Control; Traffic Control; Use of Motive Power; Control of Trainmen; Distribution of Freight Brake Vans; Release of Coal and Coke for Shipment; General Instructions; and Control Procedure.

The file is word-searchable and is provided with bookmarks to take you to each of the main parts of the report. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
