Crossing bells and wig-wags protecting Caradoc, Metcalfe, Richmond, Oxford and Victoria Streets, do not work automatically for these crossings on other than main tracks, unless put into automatic operation by operator handling controls at telegraph office in station. Therefore all movements over crossings on tracks on other than main tracks must be protected by member of crew. Engines having cut off from their trains, with or without cars, must not make reverse movement until it is known that bells and wig-wags have been restored to automatic operation by operator, who cuts out automatic feature while engines are taking water, etc. Engines while switching must leave their trains clear of bonded area to avoid continual operation of bells and wig-wags. A button marked "Push button for reverse movement" is installed at each main track switch and crossover. To provide for reverse movements where main track switches or crossovers are used, the proper "push button" must be operated by trainman, to ensure the automatic operation of bells and wig-wags before such reverse movement is made.
No engine, tender, car or cars shall stand or remain on either end of the passing tracks for any period of time within two hundred feet of either of the boundary lines of Caradoc Street (first crossing east of station). (B.T.C. 45301).
