#100/ 4.9 [Unknown] gasket across yard BandO.
This picture was taken in the switching on the Cicero BandO C.T. at the scrap track. Picture shows a close view of the scrap car, where the deebre (debris) laying along side of the car, which constitutes a safety hazard. Picture 11 shows the same car from a different position, in the foreground is a street crossing used by the workers and residents. I think a fireman is necessary for the general protection of the public and for personal injury of the members of the crews. Also close clearance the of the building make the signal passing on the firemans side.

(5) 17 Ex.8 Robey St West- Inst. Switching Lead
Picture No 8 A good general view of the Robey Street Yards looking from the top of a car toward the lead track that is utilized for switching over of cuts. On the left hand side of the picture we see a lead that goes to an industry serviced by the BandO C.T. to properly service this industry the switchmen must comply with the rule on safety. Under the general notices, so it would be impossible that they would ride the cars next to the retaining wall while going down the grade to reach the spoting position for the lead, therefore their signals would be given from the left side to the fireman who in turn relay them to the engineer. Rule 885-887. Therefore I think the fireman is necessary not only for his rules but to help the engineer to keep within his. 871-877. Looking up across the top of the cars to the lead notice the reverse curve that this switching is down, on lead notes this switching is down by a [unknown] to the extreme right top of the picture Again I call attention to the fort that a fireman is necessary to comply with the Rules and Regulations Fireman 877-885-94-98-98A General notice BandA Engineers - 871-877- 884 and clearance Notice and general rules - Last paragraph L

Picture No 4. This picture is of the general view of the Roby (Robey) St yard area. The first to (two) tracks are for main line movement. The first in the picture is the inbound, the second outbound. From the third track on no. 1 yard to no 18 tracks is need (needed) for for yard switching. Notice the reverse curve in the construction of the yard. This consists from a straight track to a tangent curve to the left and straight track and a tangent lift. The tracks to the right of the curve tripple (triple) are for engine house use. For out-bound engine with the exception of the one to the right of the second diesel. Which is used for incoming engines. Engines that back out from the depot to the engine house necessitates the fireman to be seated on the road end of the consists, looking at the picture that means the unit that is the front end the picture. This must be done in order to comply with the Book on Rules and regulations of the BandO BandO C.T. rules 94- 98 98A 877- 885 and general notices BandL. Ex 4

Trains are made for main line movements this yard is located from a straight switching lead to a tangent curve to the Right. I think a fireman are ought to be on the engine to comply with rules 94-98-98 A 877 - 885-general rules B-L of the BandO operating regulation EX 3

The c.p.t. signal in the center of the picture is used for main track movements. To the right of the signal is no 1 and no 2 main tracks ( the two tracks that have ballast under the ties) Then further to right we have the yard track from one to eighteen. These as in picture one is a tangent to the right and straight track and a tangent to the left. The yard tracks are parallel to the main tracks. Necessitating a fireman for various safety reasons. I believe a fireman is necessary in or (order) to comply with the rules 94-98A 98-877 885 - general rules issued by BandO and Band) C.T. under Rules and Regulation. Under general notices Ex 2
