Q. What are the precautions taken by LP while crossing a blank signal?
Answer. In the past , lot of accidents have occured due to mistaken signal jump by loco pilots. General & subsidiary rules,1976 section 3.74 indicates rules for Loco Pilot(LP) in this regard. Following symptoms indicate a faulty signal :
1. No signal present at designated place. This may be due to breakage from pole
No light emanating from signal. This may be due to damage in signal lamp.
3. White light coming out from signal instead of designated color light.
4 Multiple colors light emanating from signal indicating two contrasting signal indicators.
Upon facing any one of above scenario, LP should deem the signal to be faulty and should compulsorily stop train before it. After that follow the procedure given below
1. If signal is earmarked with marker 'P", then LP may cautiously move the train to next signal.
2. If signal is earmarked with marker 'R" it indicates a repeater signal then LP after stopping at that signal and after crossing it may cautiously move the train to next signal.
3. If signal is a permanent stop signal , then LP should communicate with station officer of next station and ask for his/her permission.
After crossing a blank signal next station officer should be informed. While crossing the signal Speed should be low, such that up on observing any obstacle on the tracks train maybe immediately halted.

    @all: At this time, the PNR Forum is functioning again, albeit at a greatly reduced volume and efficiency. Refreshing PNRs is a very cumbersome affair. We may expect this to end as well, eventually, as the Govt. tightens these controls further. At IRI, we CANNOT waste any more time on this fruitless...

    @all: The PNR Forum as we know it is OVER. The official website has unilaterally decided to thoroughly block and shut down all access to PNR info.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
