MSWJ SINGLE LINE TABLET REGULATIONS / Page 8
| 36. - Thirty Tablets are supplied to each pair of Tablet
Instruments. On Tablet sections where a greater number of trains run in one
direction than in the other, causing the tablets to accumulate at one end
of the section, the Tablets will, when necessary, by transferred by the Telegraph
Lineman from the Tablet Instrument at which the Tablets accumulate to the
Instrument at the other end of the section. When a Tablet Instrument contains
less than Five Tablets, the Traffic Manager and Telegraph Lineman must be
advised in order that the necessary transfer may be made. The number engraved
on each Tablet that is removed by the Telegraph Lineman must be recorded
by the Lineman in the in the Train Tablet Register provided for the purpose
and kept by him, and the Signalman must sign the entry and insert the time
at which the transaction takes place. The Signalman on duty at the Tablet
Station to which the Tablets are transferred must, immediately on receipt,
compare the numbers recorded in the Train Tablet Register with the numbers
engraved on the Tablets, and when he has satisfied himself that the numbers
are correct, and that the whole of the Tablets have been deposited in the
proper Tablet Instrument, he must sign the Register and insert the time at
which the transaction takes place.
When Signalmen are instructed by Platelayers, in accordance with Rule 323 in the Company's Book of Rules and Regulations, to caution trains, they must keep their Fixed Signals applicable to the trains that have to be cautioned at Danger, until the speed of the approaching train has been sufficiently reduced and the train is near to the Home Signal ; the Home Signal must then be lowered to allow the train to pass, and a Green Hand Signal must be exhibited to the Driver.
