Talk:Single line working using tokens
I've started a page. Could someone more specialist than me add some details please, as a little learning is a dangerous thing.
Common questions from fellow passengers that I've answered as best as I can mostly seem to relate to to the process of passing trains, including
- Will we meet something coming the other way?
- What do those bell codes mean?
- What is that think like a tennis racket?
- Can two trains enter the station at once?
- Why does the second train to enter the station always seem to be the first one to leave
I created a reference to ETTElectric Train Token Regulations elsewhere. When I get a moment I'll create a bit of text on that subject. Brian
I'm on the case. Will add some more on operation after dinner. Brian
I've typed most of mine up, because I'll already written it in my head. I've completed the historical context, description, and operation and i think i've covered most of the FAQs above; I'll add sections on bell signals (should this be a separate page?), crossing trains and pilotman working later. I'll resist including the standard "pilotmen must not be handed to the crew using the token carrier" joke.--WillSalt (talk) 18:47, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
Bell signals is probably best as a separate one, as ETTElectric Train Token, AL, and AB are largely identical. I've added an operations section on AL, similar to the ETTElectric Train Token one (and about 50% is just copy-pasted!), and briefly mentioned Rule 147 (although not in same) at the end of the ETTElectric Train Token page - which I guess would be covered further in a crossing trains section. --Danny252 (talk) 19:37, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
That was what I was thinking about bell signals. I was going to put Rule 147 into the crossing trains section. I thought about mentioning the concept of block-on-block working but a) it's not a token specific thing b) this isn't a signalling manual! --WillSalt (talk) 19:41, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
I've uploaded a set of four photos, [[:File:HYBNTokenInstr.jpg], File:HYTokenInstrClose.jpg, File:HYHLToken.jpg, and File:TokenCarrier.jpg. I've not got much time this evening, so feel free to use them if you're doing some writing! --Danny252 (talk) 20:00, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
