Abstract

This is the complete Book of Rules as used by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Full signal diagrams are included, though note that the PRR did not print their signal diagrams in color. [See [eventually] the NORAC Book of Rules, 1995 for color versions.] Interesting features in this PRR BoR include: a full set of Manual Block Signal System rules, plus rules for Cab Signals, Engine and Train Whistle Signals, and descriptions of various employees' duties.
