When must signalling work be published in the WON? 17/09/2019 at 18:50 #120452

Simple enough question I hope.

What are the criteria that decide whether signalling work gets published in Section C of the WON, instead of being dealt with by RT3187 forms?

You would think when the work is permanent, or expected to be permanent, but I'm wondering about objective, specific criteria, because I know RT3187 forms can be signed for an awful long time afterwards, some disconnections get rolled into box instructions, etc.

So I'm wondering when must signalling work be published in the WON?

I'm sure someone else will come along with a better criteria, but in my experience flip a coin to decide if it ends up in the WON

Additions/Modifications are generally always published from my experience; at least in recent times on my little corner of the railway - even for minutiae such as filament lamp signals being replaced with searchlight LEDs etc.

Disconnections on the other hand often aren’t mentioned. One of the NR controls I interface with sends out a disconnections report every night; some of the stuff has been on there for 15+ years going by the dates given!

I think it’s down to the nature of them. Drivers and other staff need to know about alterations and additions. Disconnections are much less relevant; as they’re more often than not not initially intended to be permanent. It doesn’t matter that 8306 points have been signed out of use and barred in the interlock for facing moves reverse for 9 months; the staff on the ground will just never see those routes used.
