@lynnesbian Oh hey! I'm the person who originally submitted this to reddit.
As far as I know, this rule is no longer in place. It still shows up in some recent-ish documents (like ), but a train driver I know showed me a screenshot of a document explicitly stating that this paragraph was made obsolete.
It also doesn't show up in the current R 300.5 anymore.
