Finse - occupying main track and sidings
Author: JGFuller

In watching the Finse station webcam, I saw today a front-end loader and what appears to be a ballast regulator, removing snow from the tracks. In so doing, do they obtain authority to occupy the track, similar to North American "Track and Time" authority? If not, how is protection afforded?

From Union Pacific's version of the General Code of Operating Rules:

10.3: Track and Time
The control operator may authorize a train to occupy a track or tracks within specified limits for a certain time period. Authority must
include track designation, track limits, and either a time limit or the words “until released”. The train may use the track in either
direction within the specified limits according to signal indication until the limits are verbally released.

Since the  BERGEN LINE IS ctc CONTROLLED THE TRAIN DISPATCHER BLOCKS OUT THE   STATION WHILE THE WORK GOES ON

Large selection of webcams showing European trains are available through this website, even though many do not seem to be working or working properly
