RAILROAD SIGNALS HOME
Both rulebooks below are divided into two signal sections. The first section deals with signals found on the old C&O divisions, and the second section covers signals on the B&O divisions.
The C&O section rules, although dated 1969, are the same as the rules from the 1958 C&O rulebook I have here.
The B&O rules were re-numbered to begin with a "B", such as B-281.
Does anyone have a rulebook from
the earlier years, say the 20's or 30's, that they would like to share?
All of the pictures below are available here as a PDF (~4megs).
