    I hesitate to repost too many early Standard Plans prints since a number of them are virtual duplicates of the small versions printed in RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF WAY AND STRUCTURES (JUL 1914) available here at OPERATIONS - Rules of the Transportation Department. This Tell Tale print is an example, however this one has enough additional detail to perhaps justify posting it here.

    Keep posting the Standard Plans that have additional details they are very important documents that need to be shown.

    Anyone ever hear stories of old-time brakemen that would've gotten a thwack by one of these? I can't imagine that it would have felt very good, but was obviously preferable to the alternative thwack of the actual obstruction.

    I'll echo Bill and Joe's comments: whatever you have on hand to post, please carry on.

    Best Regards,
