Flag exchange will continue till the end of the crossing train with both engineers keeping an on the passing by train for its formation intact and the axle, looking for any hot axle.
What does the green flag from a train engineer mean? I saw in the video that a train engineer in India, while passing a station, oncoming train or rail workers, shows a green flag. Does this mean that the railway is free for movement or that there are no threats to the safety of railway traffic? Russian Railways also have flags and are related to manual signals. Manual signals are given by railway workers (who carry out repairs and other work on rail tracks), duty officers of railway crossings, conductors of long-distance trains and other workers. Depending on the situation, this flag may have different meanings. Only in Russian Railways, instead of the green flag, is the yellow flag. The train engineer does not have a flag in the cockpit and responds to the flag with the whistle of a train or locomotive.
