 1.5

The vehicles of stabled load/train should be coupled together. IF stabled load is split, each such split part should be treated as a separate load for the purpose of securing;  1.6 The points must be set, clamped and padlocked against the blocked line and towards dead end or trap point The padlock keys personal custody of S M.

 2.

Additional precautions to be taken while stabling vehicles/load/train at a station with gradient steeper than 1 in 400 may have been prescribed under approved special instructions (by CRS) and mentioned in SWR of respective station. These should be followed scrupulously. In addition, following precautions must also be observed over and above those prescribed under approved special instructions:-

 2.1

Before vehicles are uncoupled, the hand brakes should be applied, wooden wedges/iron skids, should also be used to prevent vehicles from rolling down;  2.2 As far as possible, the vehicles/load/train should be stabled on a line which is isolated from other lines, particularly running lines.

 3.

Action by Loco Pilot/Assistant Loco Pilot before leaving the loco in case load/train is stabled with locomotive attached or light engine(s) is/are shut down or stabled: 3.1 Application of both SA-9 and A-9 brakes;
◦ 3.2 Application of hand brake and parking brake;`

 3.3

Secure the loco with wooden wedges/iron skids provided on the loco;  4.1 Loco Pilot while on duty should not leave loco unmanned. In case he is required to leave the locomotive unmanned, he should do so only after receiving written authority from the SM and ensuring 3 (3.1), (3.2) & (3.3) above;

 4.2

Before leaving the Station/Yard, the Loco Pilot and Guard should jointly sign record in the stabled train register to be maintained with Station Master that the load & loco has been secured as prescribed above. If the Loco is not stabled with the formation only guard has to sign in the stabled load register.

 

Note: The change in aspect or indications of a distant signal is applicable for single distant signal territory and not for double distant territory. Item No.2 SR 3.07 is amended as follows:2. Two Distant signals (Distant and Inner Distant) have been provided in some multiple aspect signalling sections. The outermost signal is called ‘DISTANT’ and the next signal is called ‘INNER DISTANT’. The Distant signal is generally placed at a distance of 2 KMs from the Stop Signal. There is no warning board in double distant sections.

Note: The two yellow lights of a distant signal constitute the ‘attention’ aspect and signify
‘proceed, preparing to pass the next stop signal at restricted speed’. Restricted speed indicates the speed which is well under control of the Loco Pilot/Motorman considering the local condition, brake power of the train etc., so that it can be stopped at the next signal if required. The speed as such, to be adjusted by the Loco Pilot / Motorman himself.
