As far as I know, the ERIE used "Herald" as the nomenclature for theIn official documents the Santa Fe called its cross-in-circle-in-

to have been any term that was universal, or nearly so, in the
railroad industry. Modern day historians and modelers have generally
called them "heralds," but the use of that term goes back far enough
in history that it obviously was not a modeler's invention.
