Re: NYC/PC/CR train annunciators actuated by track circuit
We had the open mic type on the C&O on lines that I dispatched. They were located at Greenville, Breckenridge, Paines and Yale. We could ring them on and off in the same manner you describe, just like ringing a depot or tower. On the train sheet, we would record the time in parentheses because we could not use them as official OS's to verify a train was complete by any of these points as far as manual block information or issuing train order or track car authority. They were considered "information only."
