ISLINGTON WORKS (KILBURN) CROSSOVER
APPLIES TO THE FOLLOWING ROUTE: -
MILE END TO DRY CREEK
The double throw crossover points (6 and 6A) leading to the Islington Works are
governed by a ‘slot’ arrangement.
The ARTC controller requests the slot from the PTS controller when a movement is required to move between the ARTC Main Line and the Islington Workshops in either direction across the PTS main lines.
Once the PTS controller has accepted the request from the ARTC controller for a movement to proceed to or from the works, points 6 and 6A will travel to the reverse position and the applicable signal (35 or 36) will show a proceed indication.
Acceptance of the slot request by the PTS controller reverses the points. If a signal has been selected (stored), it will clear for the movement once the points are detected in reverse.
Signals (35 and 36) are operated by ARTC control.
In the event of the failure of these signals to clear for a movement over the crossover the authority to pass the signals at STOP are issued by ARTC control to the crew of the movement once the PTS controller has confirmed that the points are set and blocked in the reverse position.
