What is Rule 55?

If a train was brought to a stand at a signal, within three minutes in clear weather or immediately in rain, snow or fog, the driver of the train must dispatch his fireman, guard or any shunter riding on the train, to the signal box to ensure that the signalman was aware of the presence of the train, and that all safeguards to protect the train, such as slides or collars on the signal levers, were in place, the crewman then signing the train register to confirm this.
