I figured there was more to mile posts than just identifying where
you are in an emergency! Where and when do you receive Form D's?
Are they like your train orders?

Gino-Mile posts are very important on our line.We dont have signals so
every move is made by written permission (FORM D) from one point to
another.When Form D's are issued they will instruct the train to move
from a certain mile post to another mile post.Also a station point may
be used.Mile posts are also used to show where the speeds are
different.Thats how Paul knows where he can do 135mph or 100mph. But
there is a lot more to it. Mark
