Many thanks to Stewart Rhine for scanning and sending these pages of the 1911 WW&F Railway Co. Rulebook!

Rule 42 didn't say anything about hitting humans or vehicles. Apparently you didn't need to fill forms in triplicate if you hit a Model T at a crossing... Thanks for posting Stewart's Rulebook Steve!

45 rules!! Man I wish that was all I had to learn. The NORAC operating rules has 998 rules and that's not counting New Hope's safety rules, timetables and EC-99!!! If you go FRA that's what your going to be dealing with. Lots and LOTS of rules and paperwork. Very neat piece of history there thanks for sharing.

But you don't need to file a written report under Rule 43!

Joe Fox replied:
I think that it is great, that we still have, and use most of the same rules, that were used on the original railroad.

James Patten replied:
That was our intent when we wrote the current rulebook.
