19 East-Copy Three


Product Description

19 East, Copy Three: This book details the art and practice of Timetable and Train Order Operations (TT&TO) for the railroad historian and modeler. This operation puts much of the responsibility for the safe and efficient operations squarely on the shoulders of these most likely to be adversely affected by a mistake: the train crews. In "dark" or unsignaled territory, where there was no automatic-block signaling system to add another layer of safety, trains moved based on everyoneÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎÌ_ÌÎå_s understanding of the book of rules, the special instructions and schedules published in the employee timetables, amendments in the form of train orders or messages from the dispatcher as relayed by local operators, and the sharp wits of dispatchers, operators and train crews. Published by the Operations Special Interest Group in soft cover, 260 pages with many color and black & white photos and illustrations.
