Scott,

Not all the hand signals were in books, There were many peculiar to railroads and specific localities. The one the Erie guys used in Lima, Ohio, to indicate "The cut is clear of Hoover St. and Ball Rd." might get one arrested if done on the street. Remember this from my Erie Western-Chicago & Indiana days.

I can't say that I ever tried to learn the lantern and hand signals I've seen in books, but I'm sure I don't remember "The Strike Is On!" being one of them!
