At quiet moments, signalmen often got “On the Blower”. This was usually an omnibus telephone system which could be communally used by all signal boxes along a section of line. Talk would be about all sorts of things, including Rules and Regulations.

We have a small set of “rules” that apply here. To improve your view of this page, these have now been moved to a “sticky” topic in each forum. Please take a moment to glance over them.
