I’m particularly interested in how the signalman would know that a particular set of points had been cleared ready for a setting back manoeuvre so he could change the points (short whistle from loco?), and, how the crew / guard would know that the signalman was ready for them to set back through a set of points (observation by crew/guard that points had been thrown? Or, green flag/ ight from signalman?). Again, any advice on this would be much appreciated.
