    A. The public grade crossing is equipped with automatic flashing lights and gates and the gates are fully lowered
    B. There are no conflicting highway movements approaching the public grade crossing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the public grade crossing is equipped with automatic flashing lights and gates and the gates are fully lowered, and there are no conflicting highway movements approaching the public grade crossing. This means that if the crossing has safety measures in place such as flashing lights and lowered gates, and there are no vehicles approaching the crossing, the train or engine can sound the whistle for less than 15 seconds when stopping at the location. This ensures that the train or engine is alerting any pedestrians or vehicles of its presence while also taking into account the safety measures in place.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Night signals must always be used from sunset to sunrise because during this time, visibility is reduced and it is harder for other drivers and pedestrians to see vehicles on the road. Night signals, such as headlights and taillights, are designed to increase visibility and ensure the safety of everyone on the road. Using night signals during the specified time period helps to prevent accidents and allows other road users to easily identify and react to the presence of vehicles.

      A white light only

    • C.

      A white light and fusee

    • D.

      A white flag, white light and fusee

    Correct Answer
    C. A white light and fusee
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a white light and fusee. This is because during night time, visibility is reduced, and a white light is used to signal the presence of flaggers to oncoming traffic. The fusee is also used as a visual signal to indicate caution. Therefore, combining a white light and fusee ensures that both visual signals are present and effectively communicate the presence of flaggers to drivers.

    The given correct answer is "Call of signals". In railway operations, an engine whistle or horn signal is used to communicate various messages to the crew members and other personnel. In this case, the sound pattern "o o o o" specifically indicates the call of signals. This signal is used to notify the crew members that a series of signals is being called out, and they need to pay attention and respond accordingly. It is a way of coordinating communication between the train crew and the signalman or other personnel involved in the operation.
