(i) A Passenger train nearing the end of its run should not normally be detained in preference
to a train which has a longer run before it, as the latter train is more likely to make up time
and reach its destination punctually than the former.
(ii) A train running to time should not be detained more than 30 minutes to
effect crossing on
single line. (This should be decided by the Division based on actual condition.)
(iii) A train running late due to defective engine, or defect in rolling stock or any other cause
which is likely to continue to operate against it and prevent it from making up time, should
generally give way to a train running properly.
