Book review

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ... FORM A. Fixed Meeting Points for Opposing Trains. (1.) will meet at . (2.) will meet at at (and so on).' Examples. ((1) No 1 will meet No 2 at Bombay. Ho 3 will meet 2d No 4 at Siam. No 5 will meet Extra 95 at Hong Kong. Extra 652 North mil meet Extra 231 South at Yokohama. (2) No 1 will meet No 2 at Bombay 2d No 4 at Siam and Extra No .9.5 at Hong Kong.

May not No. 2 proceed to B when they receive the last order, on the supposition that No. 1 must not leave there and because Order No. 2 is a later order? Axswer. No; No. 1 is quite as likely to misunderstand and proceed to C under the first order, on the theory that as the words "instead of" do not appear in the second order, the first order governs. CHART NO. 8. Order No 1. No 2 will meet No 1 at C. Onler No 2. No 2 has right over No 1 C to A. No 2 has right orer all trains C to A. Onlcr No 3. Question Number 760.
