10.0 RULES APPLICABLE ONLY IN CENTRALIZED TRAFFIC CONTROL (CTC)

10.1 Authority to Enter CTC Limits

CTC limits are designated in the timetable. A train must not enter or occupy any track where CTC is in effect unless:

Blocking or marking devices must not be removed until track and time has been released to the control operator. Other movements must not be authorized into the limits unless also granted track and time.

10.3.2 Protection of Machines, Track Cars, or Employees

Machines, track cars, or employees will receive track and time in the same manner as trains.

Machines, track cars, or employees must be clear of the limits before the employee granted track and time releases the authority. If track and time is granted to protect maintenance work, the employee must notify the control operator when the work is complete and the track is safe for train passage.

10.3.3 Joint Track and Time

Before track and time is granted for machines, track cars, or employees in the same limits with a train, each foreman and a crew member of each train must be notified of each other.
