Colours ?[edit]

Are there any other colours, besides Red and Yellow and Green, that are used for safeworking purposes?

For example, white flags? FarleyBrook (talk) 01:03, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

White lights are used a level crossings to indicate to the train driver that the electrics of the crossing are live and working. No white light means STOP before crossing and different rules apply. Heritagejim (talk) 14:57, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, another thing first: this isn't Welsh language and shouldn't be called that. The Welsh language is a Celtic language that English FR lingo has nothing to do with and that's completely unintelligible on the basis of English. (English is a Germanic language, related to Welsh only several thousand years back.) Perhaps I should have said it in Talk:Welsh language but I thought you broke your idea there just because it seemed a convenient place. --IP (talk) 01:52, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

Move "Welsh Language/FestiSpeak" > "FestiSpeak"[edit]

Touched "Enter" by accident before finishing my edit summary. Should have said that Welsh isn't the operational language on the FR, so even in an expanded article it can't be the main subject. Also, in matters like these, we need someone fluent in Railway Welsh; Google Translate is even less of a substitute than usual. --IP (talk) 14:38, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Whistle codes[edit]

What whistle codes can be used by the engine driver? See Brakes. FarleyBrook (talk) 05:05, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

There are eight whistle codes used on the F&WHR. These are: train about to move - short pop, train clear of points - two short blasts, approaching up fixed distant - one long blast, approaching down fixed distant - two long, arriving at up home at danger - short long, arriving at down home at danger - short short long, guard to apply brakes - series of short pops, emergency signal for T4 (meaning train needs to propel out) - long short long.
