2 Truths & a Lie:

- There is a CSX Rule that does nothing else but to permit the Amtrak AutoTrain to operate a passenger speeds with autoracks.

- There is a CSX Rule that lowers operating speeds for trains in suspended signalling territory or is going against the flow of traffic

- There is a CSX Rule that requires train crews to not exceed 10mph in shop and maintenance areas.

Got them all right, even the correction.

1: Rule 48
2: Rule 47
3: Rule 46-1:C. "Train speeds must not exceed 5MPH within an engine servicing area or car shop repair area.

Spot the Truth(s) and Lie(s) Ratio is 3:1, but I'm not telling you which way :twisted:

ALL ARE BASED ON CSX

1. Do not move more than 3 railcars at the same time [Work Crews] without a Brandt-type vehicle or car mover
2. There is a signal rule from the SEABOARD rules that is called "Medium Advance Approach". If true, try to guess the light colors, from top to bottom
3. Signal rules with the prefix "CR-" are Cab signals
4. "Line 6" on an EC-1 form is for Crossing Activation Failures

Got them all right, even the colors for #2.

To correct #3, change 3 to 2.
