GERT8000-S7 Iss 5

Observing and obeying signalling indications. Train warning systems. Reporting signalling failures and irregularities

Synopsis

You will need this module if you carry out the duties of a driver, person controlling train movements, shunter or signaller.

Summary Of Changes

Section 3.1. allows a passenger train to proceed on the authority of a position-light or semaphore subsidiary signal if entering a permissive platform line and this section has been revised to make clear that it is describing an associated position light or subsidiary signal rather than a ground signal. 

Section 7.2 has been revised to require reporting of defective, missing or difficult to see boards and indicators to be consistent with requirements for signals in section 7.3. The same section has been revised to require the signaller to be told ‘immediately’ rather than ‘at the first opportunity’ if any of the listed equipment is missing, difficult to see or unlit when it should be lit. The wording has also been changed to allow earlier advice to be given to subsequent trains and remedial action to be initiated. The title of section 7.2 has also been revised for completeness.
