Pedro, love the narrow guage photos and videos.  Notice that the broad guage videos the trains are using the standard US horn signals at road crossings, and that on the narrow guage they are more on the British single horn blast.  Is there a national standard, or is it based upon the operating companies?

Again thanks to showing us the unique operations in your country.

Hi, yes it company has its standard procedures but they are almost the same when telling the use of the horn. In yard operation some engineers ignore the rules and that's why we do not see them using the horn as the rules say.
