Phone Calls

Yards & Sidings

A number of yards require you to phone ahead to advise of a train’s approach. There is no rule or time limit on how early you make the call but if you do not then you will incur a penalty in most cases.

The locations are:

  • Barton Central Rivers (North & South ends);
  • Etches Park CS;
  • Derby RTC.

These locations require a call to the shunter to advise before the train is sent.

  • Kingsbury Shunt Frame.

A train destined for here must be advised to the shunter there, to ascertain whether (s)he can accept it; if necessary the train should be recessed at Elford GL on held at Burton upon Trent.
