Safety Rule of the Month - History Archives

December 2019

When engines are equipped with automatic bell ringers, the bell must be kept in operation while moving, except within the limits of cities or towns where local ordinances prohibit it, when the bell will be rung only in case of emergency or when approaching and passing over a public crossing.

[Passenger Conductor Rule #1316, New York Central Railroad, January 1, 1918]
