I wonder what this was a few days ago?
Engineering work. WON 18 refers to the Weekly Operating Notice Week 18. IT13 is the item number within the WON.
Ah yes, that makes sense.
From January when HU closed.
Usually a unit purposefully left in a station for a driver to take to sidings to save them having to walk
I'll leave this here (03:00 hrs)
Car in Car Park, some distance from depot, or vice versa
I remember when 507002 derailed in Kirkdale TMD a few years ago on Boxing day-Traksy showed OOPS.
Seen from an employee moved from a panel to a ROC
"-I-- MISS -MY- -PAN EL-- BOX-
-I-- WANT -TO- -GO- HOME"
Following high winds I have seen SHED and ROOF as well as TREE. Was around Stourbridge IIRC.
I've also seen -EO- for electricity off.
Actually maybe we could start an alphabetical "glossary" for these terms and add their alternatives as we come across them?
I wouldn't mind doing that, but would anybody find it useful?
OK yes, that would be good. I guess it would be useful, if only to satisfy curiosity when seeing something on a diagram.
Another one I find useful for identifying train types is the 8-digit TSC (Train Service Code). The scot-rail community wiki has a list which I use sometimes, but there's a few codes that I haven't found (maybe unique to England, not sure?)
List of common train describer messages:
-EO- - Electric Off/Engineer's Occupation
-T3- - Possession of line
1Z99 - Rescue train(usually locomotive)
BLKD - Line blocked
BLOC - Line blocked
BLOK - Line blocked
BRUK - Failed train
BTET - Blocked to electric traction
BUST - Failed train
CL57 - Class 57
DMIC - Failed train
DMU- - DMU in berth
DVT- - Loco hauled set
ELEC - Electric loco
FAIL - Failed train
GONE - Line out of use
LBLK - Line blocked
LECY - Electric loco
NAKA - Failed train
NDSS - North end of down station siding
NDVR - No driver
NO*R - No run-round
NOGO - Line blocked
OOU- - Line out of use
POSS - Possession of line
RUNR - Run-round
RUST - Line out of use
SHUT - Line blocked
SPRE - Spare
STBL - Stabled
TBRD - Thunderbird
TMPR - Tamper
TPEX - Transpennine Express
UNIT - Unit in berth
WAGS - Wagons in berth
WASH - Train being washed
WGNS - Wagons in berth
How's that looking? Please tell me if I've made any mistakes and anything I've missed off
NDVR - No Driver
We use EO for “engineers occupation” for T3 possessions either by personal choice or when you have two T3 possessions back to back to distinguish the possessions from each other and BTET “block to electric traction” for when the traction current is off.
NODC is used at Fawkham Junction
xCAR or xxCR seen quite often at Waterloo when the job's up the spout so they're reminding themselves how long a train is.
As in no DC current?
How many of these messages are official or are they local jargon ?
Not sure, but I think it would be prudent to include them all, so that if we come across any 'local jargon' we also know what it refers to?
FAIL - Failed train (just saw in Edinburgh, next to 1EMU)
I'm intrigued by this one:
Where does NAKA come from?
I saw STLB once on a diagram, and initially thought it was a typo of STBL, but then I saw it again somewhere else. Anyone know it?
I think there should be a separate list for official and non official. -EO- being a prime example of where there can be confusion.
N0G0 - same as NOGO, in Pelaw.
You have a point, although I'm slightly concerned that one signaller could possibly be confused by another!
