Altamont #11 question: "Hold Signal"?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Altamont Press Timetable & Products : One Thread
Could anyone be kind enough to tell me what the term "Hold Signal" means in the timetable, particularly along the UP Fresno sub. I looked througout the timetable and it does nothing to help explain this term. Perhaps you can add a note in #12? Thanks anyway.

My understanding about Hold Signals is simply an "absolute" signal that is controlled by the dispatcher. The ones mentioned on the Fresno Subdivision in the time of SP were called absolute signals, frequently when track and time permission was given out it would be between some point and the "A" signal at the next point.
