Excerpt from Manual of Recommended Practice for Railway Engineering and Maintenance of Way: Containing the Definitions, Specifications and Principles of Practice Adopted and Recommended by the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance of Way Association At the Fifth Annual Convention of the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance of Way Association, held at Chicago in March, 1904, it was decided to publish a Manual of the Recommended Definitions, Specifications and Principles of Practice for Railway Engineering and Maintenance of Way Work adopted by the Association at its conventions after due consideration of reports on the various subjects submitted by standing or special committees of the Association. Owing to the importance and weight that should be justly attributed to the deliberate and carefully expressed opinion of an Association comprising prominent railway officials and specialists in the various classes of work and duties connected with the location, construction, maintenance and operation of railroads, and the influence that this publication will undoubtedly have on railway engineering and maintenance of way work in this country, the Board of Direction has exercised particular care to include in the Manual only such matter as has been carefully and sufficiently considered by the Association prior to its adoption by vote at the annual conventions so as to warrant its publication in this Manual as the practice recommended by the Association. The Manual will be supplemented or issued annually after each annual convention and kept up-to-date by such additions and revision of previously published matter as may be decided on by the Association at each convention, working under special rules governing the publication of the Manual. The action of the Association in adopting and publishing definitions, specifications and principles of practice is in the nature of recommendations only and not binding on its members or railway companies. It is distinctly wi

Excerpt from The Railway Signal Dictionary Railway signaling is a comparatively new art, and a rapidly growing one, so that its nomenclature is unsettled and its practices varied; and numerous changes of a somewhat radical nature are still going on. The development of scientific signaling, as distinguished from the earlier and empirical methods of controlling the movements of railway trains, has proceeded from a curious combination of motives; in some cases, from the enterprise of trained men, in others from a pressing necessity due to expansion of business, and in still others to the force of public opinion, both the public and the railway officer being sometimes actuated by injudicious haste. That we are not yet out of the transition state is no cause for surprise. In making a signaling dictionary the very first step calls for arbitrary action. Hand-motion signaling, with or without the use of flags and lanterns, is excluded, because those features have no need of the services of the signal engineer. A "slow-board" is a fixed signal, but the signal engineer scarcely gives it a thought. On the other hand, automatic bells at highway crossings logically do not come under the head of railway signals, for they do not directly affect the movement of trains; but the signal engineer does take cognizance of this class, because it requires skilled attention and is usually put in his charge. In fixed signals, which constitute the subject of this work, American railway officers often make a distinction which is wholly arbitrary and, in most cases, useless - that between interlocking signals and block signals. The function of a signal being clearly stated, the English nomenclature, ignoring this distinction, is entirely adequate. But to make each collection of drawings complete in itself, we recognize this distinction; and the reader will find under the two different heads - different illustrations showing semaphore signals exactly alike. Other uses of words are inexact, yet n
