    I have just got hold of an Ian Allen Book which is a re-print of the Great Western Railway (UK) 1904 rules. I have now read a good half of it and it is very facinating. I really shows how the railway was run who had responsibility for what. I now know ther are far more signals than stop and go, home and distant. Perhaps a bit dry but very intersting. who else reads the rules. Charlie does not count he is the rules :).

    Rule books are interesting indeed, though if I were a trainman, I'd never be able to remember them all. I guess that's why they put them in writing. :)

    I have always wondered how so many railroaders remembered every little detail of those books. Talented folks, all.
