SAR/CR Trivia #24

 
  SAR621 Chief Commissioner

Ok, here we go.
                     Another Rule Book/General Appendix Question (31/1/1948 Edition), Ill need to know the rule concerning oil tanks shunting into Adelaide Railcar Depot, and what page it was on in the rule book. I'm having difficulties with RP at the moment, so If I dont reply, Ill get a mod to manage the question for me.

                               Happy Hunting, Dave
