SHUNTING FOR TRAIN AND LOCOMOTIVE MOVEMENTS AT MELBOURNE FREIGHT TERMINAL
As part of shunting operations at the Pacific National Melbourne Freight Terminal, a train or locomotive movement may need to shunt onto the ARTC main line outside either end of the terminal within specified limits.
PN must clearly outline the limits and moves required for the planned shunt to the ARTC Melbourne Metro Train Controller.
Before clearing the relevant signal for the shunt movement the Train Controller must;
* Block relevant motor operated points that the movement is to traverse as required.
The Train Controller must maintain point blocking until the train or loco has completed the shunt and PN has advised that the movement is completely behind a controlled signal.
