ALTAMONT PRESS RULES

Recommended Posts

Those of you who have purchased Altamont Press railroad timetables for different areas of the United States already know how cool they are. I bought a Texas Region timetable today. VERY VERY COOL. It has maximum speeds posted, the mile post marker of various junctions, spurs, sidetracks, etc. It has the stations listed, along with their CP number, the operating rules under which that section of track operates, siding lengths in yards (Hello! Graff commandos! Siding lengths!) and miles that the station is from the division point or railroad's main headquarters.

Mine also has four maps, one of all Texas railroads, one of Houston railroads, and two smaller maps, one of Dallas rails, the other of Fort Worth.

 

Most interesting of all to me were the page of railroad "Roadway signs" and Rule 9.1 Signal Aspects, including Union Pacific, BNSF, and KCS. VERY VERY COOL.

 

READ AND UNDERSTAND. "Share the Knowledge."

What about "yard" info? Who cares how far a station is too the next, what you wanna know is, where the layup`s are etc? Does it tell you that ?
