Movement of Trains

Following the Sequence of Trains sheet, the LEWIS operator controls movements through the WALL, LEWIS, and JACKS interlockings via a JMRI-based US&S CTC machine, setting routes and signals as appropriate. 

The LEWIS operator maintains telephone communication with the Lewistown Junction yard, coordinating moves between the yard and the main line. 

The LEWIS operator maintains telephone communication with crews on the Lewistown Secondary, Milroy Secondary, and the Selinsgrove Secondary. Movement of trains on these tracks is at restricted speed and is permitted at the discretion of the LEWIS operator. 

CTC Instructions to Come

The operator manages movements on the secondaries via a magnet board.
