Re: Do Not Hump Signs

I am sure there were plenty of claims settled because crews didn't read the placards or the special instructions.

But in a well designed hump yard with computer controlled retarders, there was a greater chance of a claim from flat switching. In older yards with manual retarder control there was a much greater chance of a high speed impact.
