Summary Of Changes

A new section 7.5 has been introduced that requires any unusual flows or pools of water that cause damage to be reported immediately to the signaller or Operations Control. Existing sections 7.5 and 7.6 have been renumbered 7.6 and 7.7 but their contents are not changed.
Section 8.1 has been changed to include damage to structures or earthworks above or below the line in the list of hazards that might put approaching trains in danger.
